Trees Ontario Partners with Preparing the Trail 2010

December 2009 – Trees Ontario is to proud to announce its partnership with Preparing the Trail 2010, an environmentally active, not-for-profit, tree adoption program dedicated to promoting environmental awareness while fundraising for Canadian Olympic Athletes in 2010.

The organization is engaging in a monumental task of reducing the ecological footprint of Canadian athletes as they race to the podium, by planting trees all over Canada. As part of this initiative, Trees Ontario will be the designated tree planting delivery agent for the province of Ontario.

The partnership is targeting to raise enough monies to support the planting of 1,000 new native tree seedlings in Ontario during the spring 2010 planting season. All trees will be planted in the spring of 2010 and will be visible through Trees Ontario’s online donation mapping feature following the spring plant.

Trees Ontario is proud to get behind our Canadian athletes by partnering with Preparing the Trail 2010 and planting trees in the province of Ontario. To learn more about the partnership and the program, visit the Preparing the Trail 2010 website at www.preparingthetrail2010.com.
