Cornwall, ON (September 6, 2018) The Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) is proud to announce they will once again be working with TD to deliver a TD Tree Days event on Saturday, September 15th, between 9am and 12pm at the Cornwall Marina Cooperative site on Montreal Road.
A total of 300 potted trees and shrubs will be planted which will count towards TD FEF’s goal of planting 1 million trees by 2030. “Tree plantings provide an opportunity for community involvement and play a vital role in protecting shorelines from erosion, improving water quality and creating wildlife habitat along watercourses” says Normand Génier, RRCA’s Forestry Specialist. He went on to say: “This year, there will also be an unveiling of three interpretive signs during the event, and as always, a free BBQ!”
If you are unable to personally attend the event in your community, please share the event within your network to help us fill the volunteer positions.
