Join Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), the Town of Halton Hills and Protect Our Water and Environmental Resources (P.O.W.E.R) this Father’s Day weekend to do some digging in honour of dad. CVC hosts a family-friendly tree planting event on Saturday June 14 at Fairy Lake Rotary Park in Acton from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
“Tree planting is a great way for families to get active and spend quality time together,” said Leslie Adams, general manager at P.O.W.E.R. “This event lets parents set a positive example of environmental stewardship for their children.”
Trees benefit Fairy Lake by reducing pollution, improving water quality and attracting wildlife. Tree planting participants will have a positive impact on the environment by enhancing the area’s green space.
Attendees can get involved in crafts, wildlife activities and games. The celebration will be capped off with a special treat for all participants.
Participants should dress for the weather and wear long pants and sturdy shoes. This event is great for people of all ages, including students looking to earn community service hours. No experience is necessary as there will be on-site training demonstrations. Equipment will be provided but extras are appreciated.
