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]

While you are here, we have a small ask.

More people are reading The Review than ever before — across our many platforms. So far, we have not put up a paywall to limit the stories you can read. We want to keep you in the news loop. But advertising revenues are increasingly going to the big two: you know who they are. If you value The Review’s independent, local community journalism, or you value the many ways we support dozens of community organizations in their endeavours, consider supporting our work. It takes time, effort and professional smarts to stay on top of community news and present well-researched, objective news articles on issues which matter to you.
