Are you looking for a way to give back to the community? Do you want to help make a difference in the environment? Now here’s your chance. Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is hosting a community tree planting in Caledon on Saturday, May 10 from 9 a.m. to noon at Caledon Creek off of McCort Drive. This event is in partnership with the Town of Caledon, Ontario Streams and Halton Peel Woodlands and Wildlife Stewardship (HPWWS).

“Together with our partners and help from the community, our goal is to plant 200 trees and shrubs with at least 30 participants,” said Mike Puddister, Director of Restoration and Stewardship for CVC. “This is a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, while doing your part for the local environment.”

Tree planting experience is not required and training will be provided.

Students are encouraged to participate and earn their community volunteer hours. Light refreshments and snacks will be offered after the tree planting.

Participants should dress for the weather, and wear long pants and boots if possible. Shovels and gloves are provided but extras would be helpful.

For more information, contact Lindsey Jennings, Assistant Program Coordinator of Community Outreach for CVC at 905-670-1615 ext. 445 or [email protected].
