Volunteers at the Maple Leaf Project in 2017.

Plaque to commemorate Maple Leaf Project

The Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) is proud to announce they will be unveiling a commemorative plaque this weekend at the Maple Leaf Project site. The Maple Leaf Project is a tree plantation established in 2017 in celebration of Canada’s 150 birthday and is Canada’s only maple leaf-shaped tree plantation.

The unveiling was held Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 9:00am to 12:00pm at the Children’s Aid Society of SD&G located at 150 Boundary Road, next to Gray’s Creek Conservation Area. This event included a tree planting, mulching and a free BBQ for volunteers.

The Raisin Region Conservation Authority would like to thank  Tree Canada, Children’s Aid Society of SD&G, Transistion Cornwall and the City of Cornwall for their support  of our @TreeCanada, #Canada150 project.  To register as a volunteer, please contact Josianne Sabourin at 613-938-3611 ext. 221, or [email protected]
