Play a part in “greening” your local community by joining Forests Ontario, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, Ontario Wood, City of Windsor and the Essex Region Conservation Authority on Saturday, May 6th for the 9th annual Community Planting Weekend.
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.
Time: 10:00am – 1:00pm
What to Bring: To participate in this family-friendly event, bring a shovel, gardening gloves and lots of energy!
What We Will Bring: We will supply the rest – the trees, forestry specialists, mulch and snacks.
Parking: Parking is available across from 1292 Tranby Avenue.
Space is limited and pre-registration is appreciated.
