Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) and the City of Mississauga invite residents to a community tree planting on Saturday, May 31, from 9 a.m. to noon at Erindale Park, 1695 Dundas Street West in Mississauga.

“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, Director of Restoration and Stewardship 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. Participants are asked to dress for the weather, and wear long pants and boots if possible. Shovels and gloves will be provided or participants may also bring their own. There will be light refreshments and snacks after the tree planting. 

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

Conservation Authorities are a provincial/municipal partnership. CVC was established by an act of the province in 1954 with a mandate to protect all natural resources other than minerals in the area drained by the CreditRiver. We have been working for 60 years with our partner municipalities and stakeholders to protect and enhance the natural environment of the Credit River Watershed for present and future generations.
