Urban Greening & Tree Planting
Trees have the power to mitigate climate change and so can you. Together with young people and community members, we are putting shovels in the ground to take action to support the federal government’s ambitious plan to plant 2 billion trees in the next decade.
Our current tree planting program offering is 3 hours in Lower Mainland British Columbia. It includes tree planting or invasive species removal, learning about other local stewardship opportunities, a reflection activity, and the ability to ask questions to urban greening professionals.
We are always adding new and exciting program topics. Come back and visit this page regularly or send an email to email@example.com to be added to our mailing list.
