Forests Ontario Community Tree Planting Weekend
May 4-5, 2019N/A
The community that plants together, grows together! The annual Community Planting Weekend takes place during the first weekend of May. It brings together families, community members and volunteers to take part in a half-day tree planting activity, promoting local engagement and environmental awareness.
This family-friendly event offers participants the chance to directly support their community in a local reforestation project and learn about the benefits of trees, shade and green urban spaces.
The events are held rain or shine and participants are asked to bring a shovel, gardening gloves and a lot of energy! Forests Ontario and its partners supply the rest – the trees, forestry specialists, mulch and snacks. Appropriate outdoor clothing, sturdy shoes (steel toe if possible), a hat and sunscreen are recommended.
