Hands-on environmental activity on the way for Windsor

April 21, 2017 by  

Individuals and families alike from Windsor have been asked to do their part in helping to make the city a bit greener.

The city has partnered with several local businesses and not-for-profit organizations to host a day that will be dedicated to planting trees. The seedlings will be installed in public spaces, and with some care and luck, they will spend the next few decades helping to clean the air and bring nature to the urban environment.

Those who plan on taking part in the activity are asked to arrive dressed for the task at hand, and to bring along a pair of gardening gloves and a shovel. The trees, as well as snacks, mulch and advice from horticultural experts, will be provided. Plenty of parking will be available, and anyone who is interested in lending a hand is asked to register ahead of time, as space is limited. The organizers of an event like this can call on a poster printing provider to supply them with an assortment of materials that can help promotion.

This day of helping the environment has been planned for Tranby Park in Windsor on May 6. It will run from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm. Anyone who wold like to find out additional information has been asked to contact Chris Wai at 416-646-1193, extension 223 or through email at cwai@forestsontario.ca.
