Upcoming event to spruce up Surrey park

September 24, 2018 by  

Native trees offer food and shelter for wildlife, clean the air and provide both oxygen and beauty to the natural world, and Surrey is hoping for a good turnout for an event that will help to build its urban forest.

Hazelnut Meadows Community Park will be getting “spruced up”, and locals can lend a hand. Tree planters are needed, and to thank them for their efforts, a variety of special activities have been planned.

Those who come to the National Tree Day planting part will receive instruction in seedling planting and care, and they will help to plant them throughout the park. While they work, they can enjoy live music and a lunch will be provided for them as well. An assortment of other nature-themed activities will also be on offer, and all ages are welcome. Anyone who is interested in being a part of the day is encouraged to gather their friends and family to come out, and those who will be organizing a group of 10 or more has been asked to contact 604-501-7687.

Both the tools and training needed to complete the project will be provided to the volunteers who come out to help green the park. Pop-up banners and other marketing materials for this sort of activity can be crafted by a local printing services provider.

This Saturday, September 29 has been chosen as the date for this activity. It is scheduled to run from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.
