Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites neighbours to connect with nature and each other at the Orangeville Community Tree Planting on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 9 a.m. to noon. This event is in partnership with the Orangeville Sustainability Action Team (OSAT) and Councillor Sylvia Bradley.

“We’re thrilled to partner again with OSAT and Councillor Bradley in her final tree planting as town councillor,” said Mike Puddister, Deputy CAO and Director of Watershed Transformation at CVC. “For the past decade, Councillor Bradley has shown unwavering commitment to improving the environment. She’s been a devoted leader encouraging the community to actively protect nature for future generations. We’re so thankful for her ongoing support.”

CVC has partnered with OSAT and Councillor Bradley for the past 10 years through local tree plantings and Earth Day events. Councillor Bradley’s commitment to environmental protection inspired the creation of OSAT in 2007. As chair of the committee, Bradley has supported a number of community initiatives and helped plant thousands of trees with CVC.

This event is an opportunity for residents to work alongside CVC and its partners, while contributing to the health of nature. Planting trees is one of the best ways neighbours can help build a thriving community that’s resilient to the effects of a changing climate.

Planting trees helps reduce soil erosion, creates habitat for birds and animals, and contributes to a beautiful neighbourhood. Volunteers are essential to creating a healthy local environment.

No experience is necessary and CVC staff will provide the tree planting “know how.” Students are encouraged to participate to earn their community volunteer hours.

Participants should dress for the weather, and wear long pants and boots if possible. Shovels and gloves are provided.
