The Essex Region Conservation Authority is looking for community organizations and individuals to help plant trees and celebrate Earth Day on Sunday, April 24th.

From 10am to 12noon, ERCA will host its annual Earth Day Tree Planting Celebration at Florence & McHugh, just east of the WFCU Centre in Windsor. More than 2000 trees will be planted at this free community event, which celebrates the act of coming together to help the environment.

“Earth Day is about taking action – all of us working together to protect our watersheds and restore natural areas to help improve our quality of life and the attractiveness of this region,” explains Danielle Breault Stuebing, ERCA’s Director of Community Outreach Services.

Besides families and individuals, ERCA also welcomes any groups, from private businesses to community organizations, to participate as Green Teams. “Green Teams are a great way of organizational team building, and many businesses, church groups, service clubs and others come out year after year as a way to celebrate Earth Day,” Breault Stuebing adds.

Any groups who do pre-register as a Green Team with a minimum of ten members will be recognized with a plaque during the opening ceremony for their support of the event.

For more information and the Green Team registration form can be found online at
