Participants will get the chance to directly support their community in a local reforestation project and learn about the benefits of trees, shade and green urban spaces. Last year, the initiative drew more than 550 volunteers and a total of 3,275 trees were planted province-wide. The NPC planting site is located at the corner of the Niagara Parkway and Whirlpool Road (parking available courtesy of Niagara Helicopters, 3731 Victoria Avenue, Niagara Falls) and the event will be held rain or shine. Participants are asked to bring their own shovel, gardening gloves and lots of energy! NPC and Trees Ontario will supply the rest – the trees, forestry specialists, mulch and snacks. Appropriate outdoor clothing, sturdy shoes (steel toe if possible), a hat and sunscreen are also recommended. Other supporting sponsors include: CAA South Central Ontario, CAA North & East Ontario and TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
