September 3, 2015 – Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), the City of Brampton and the Sierra Club invite residents to a community tree planting on Saturday, September 12, from 9 a.m. to noon at North Wanless Channel in Brampton. Access to the site is available on Iron Block Drive.

“This is an opportunity for community members to enjoy the outdoors, connect with nature and do their part for the local environment,” said Mike Puddister, Deputy CAO and Director of Watershed Transformation for CVC.

Participants will plant native trees and shrubs to increase forest cover. Trees beautify the landscape, improve air quality and provide habitat for local wildlife.

No tree planting experience is necessary and training will be provided. Students are encouraged to participate and earn volunteer hours. Participants are asked to dress for the weather, and wear long pants and boots if possible. Shovels and gloves will be provided. There will be light refreshments and snacks after the tree planting.
