Play a part in “greening” your local community by joining Michael’s Hair Body Mind, Trees Ontario and its partners, Credit Valley Conservation, on Wednesday, September 24th at the Rattray Marsh Conservation Area.
This half-day planting event takes place in a public space and brings together families, friends and community members for a chance to contribute to a meaningful project that offers vast environmental benefits for all Ontarians! Participation helps build awareness around the importance of trees, which clean our air, improve water supplies, foster wildlife habitat, contribute to human health and provide a buffer against the effects of climate change.

What We Will Bring: Trees Ontario will supply the rest – the trees, forestry specialists, mulch and snacks.
