Tree planting 2012

April is Earth Month, and to celebrate, the Essex Region Conservation Authority is inviting everyone to join them on Sunday, April 21st to help plant more than 1,800 native trees and shrubs in the City of Windsor.

This year, the tree planting event will once again take place in the Little River Corridor at Florence and McHugh, just east of the WFCU Centre, thanks to sponsorship from the Windsor Cardiac Centre and additional support from the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup

Everyone is invited, and if you register 10 or more members from your business or community group for the Green Team Challenge, you’ll receive a Certificate of Participation at the event.

Kids will be able to participate in Nature Crafts and Games, or try a Nature Scavenger Hunt. There will also be a fundraising barbeque by the Friends of Canard River. Bring your electronic waste to be properly recycled. A collection of outdated computers, televisions, radio and other electronics is being organized by ERCA’s Youth Engagement Team to benefit the Computers for Kids organization.
