Climate Readiness Week Community Tree Planting

Sat., Sept. 17, 9:30 a.m.-noon

Help make the Fletchers Creek SNAP neighbourhood more sustainable and ready for a changing climate. Together we will plant native trees and shrubs to help fight climate change by storing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. They cool your neighbourhood on hot summer days, create habitat for local wildlife and add beauty to your community.
