After a two year hiatus, the Essex Region Conservation Authority will again host an Earth Day Tree Planting Celebration in the City of Windsor on Sunday, April 24th.

“ERCA is so pleased to once again partner with the City of Windsor to welcome people back to plant trees in celebration of Earth Day,“ explains Danielle Stuebing, ERCA’s Director of Communications & Outreach. “We are so thankful to Enwin, Trees Canada, LCBO and CUPE 543 for their generous sponsorship that will allow more than 2,300 trees to be added to the City of Windsor’s landscape.”

Pparticipants are asked to pre-register for one of three planting shifts – at 10am; 11:30am or 1pm. This will allow staff and volunteers to safely manage crowds. As well, guests are asked to wear masks in areas where 2 metres of distance cannot be maintained. Guests who wish to attend can register here.

The event will be hosted at the green space along the Ganatchio Trail. Parking is available at Riverside Kiwanis Park/Pump Track parking lot, McHugh Park parking lot and various public parking lots along Riverside Drive east.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own shovel, if possible. There will be a limited supply of tree planting tools available to share.
