Join us as we plant 200 native trees and shrubs in Hickory Wood Park (Brampton) on October 1!
Whether this is your first time or you've planted thousands of trees, all ages and abilities are welcome. High school students can get service hours by volunteering.
Hickory Wood Park is considered a "heat vulnerable neighbourhood". Planting trees in Hickory Wood Park is part of Peel Region’s Green Natural Infrastructure Strategy to help make this community more resilient to climate change. Among their many benefits, trees contribute to cooling the air and circulating water in their local environment. Tree planting here also contributes to habitat linkages in the urban forest.
We are happto to partnering with Credit Valley Conservation and Sheridan College for this event. Sierra Club is bringing snacks and volunteers. We hope you will be one of them!
