Help us plant 2100 trees in Baker Drive Park, and celebrate Russell Lake Takes Root.
Last year we hosted our first tree planting in Russell Lake West, a new community branching off of Baker Drive in Dartmouth. We planted 1200 trees with the help of over 400 members of the community both local, and further afield. We're returning this year to continue our mission to make Baker Drive Park a greener place on Sept 20th, 10AM-2PM.
We're back this year to plant 2100 trees along the east side of the building (right side in the image below) on the corner of Basswood Run and Baker Drive. Why are we planting a strip? Because one day this park will be used by many members of the community, and a small strip of forest between the building and park means the building residents are shielded from sound and prying eyes, and park users will feel some privacy from the overlooking balconies. It's a win-win solution!
