September 14, 2015 – Are you looking for a way to give back to the community? Do you want to help make a difference in the environment? Here’s your chance. Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is hosting a community tree planting in Halton Hills on Saturday, September 26 from 9 a.m. to noon. The event will take place at Cedarvale Park in Georgetown, located at 185 Main Street. This event is in partnership with the Town of Halton Hills, Alcoa and TD Friends of the Environment.
“This is a great opportunity to bring residents together and get outdoors,” said Mike Puddister, Deputy CAO and Director of Watershed Transformation for CVC. “Tree planting events are good for the community and good for nature. It’s an opportunity to get to know your neighbours and give back to the environment. The trees we plant today help improve air, water and soil quality, which is vital for the future.”
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.
