Community Tree Planting event

Community Tree Planting event

May 18, 2022 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) and the City of Cornwall is inviting you, your family and friends to be a part of two natural infrastructure restoration projects:

  1. Riparian Restoration at Pitt & Tollgate (funded by the Ontario government)
  2. Ash tree replacement at Snetsinger Park (funded by Earth Day Canada) – other native species will be planted to replace the ash trees

If interested in participating, please arrive at Snetsinger Park for 3pm to register with RRCA and for a tree planting demo. From there we will walk along the bike path to Pitt & Tollgate (approx. 10 minute walk). Feel free to bring your bike! After planting approximately 300 trees and shrubs at Pitt & Tollgate (holes will already be dug), we will make our way back to Snetsinger to plant the remaining 50 trees.

Please bring a refillable water bottle (large water jugs will be on site), gloves, long pants, and sturdy closed-toed shoes. A hat and sunscreen are recommended.

We will be planting rain or shine, so please be prepared for the weather.

Here is a short video explaining the project:

Feel free to forward the invite to your colleagues! Thank you 😊
