April is Earth Month and to celebrate the Essex Region Conservation Authority is inviting everyone to join them on Sunday, April 27th 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.

If you register ten or more members from your business or community group for the Green Team Challenge, you’ll receive a Certificate of Participation at the event.

“Planting trees is a great way to help the environment as they provide shaded area for recreation, wildlife habitat, and help address climate change by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the air,” says Richard Wyma, ERCA’s General Manager. “The importance of planting trees cannot be overstated, particularly as most of the region’s watersheds scored only a grade of D when it came to forest coverage.”

Kids can participate in Nature Crafts and make a Seed Bomb. 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 A collection of outdated computers, televisions, radio and other electronics is being organized by ERCA’s Youth Engagement Team to benefit the Computers for Kids organization.
