​Volunteers needed fo​​​​r spring tree planting

ACS_Tree_Web.jpgUtopia, Ontario (April 25, 2018) – The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority (NVCA) is looking for volunteers to help plant thousands of native trees across the watershed.

Volunteers are needed for tree planting events throughout the spring, including plants in: 

  • New Tecumseth on May 5
  • Bradford West Gwillimbury on May 5
  • Innisfil on May 6​
  • ​Minesing Wetlands (near Angus) on May 11, 12 and 16
  • Essa on May 12
  • Adjala-Tosorontio on May 12 and 27
  • New Lowell on May 15
  • Shelburne on May 26
  • Mono on May 28

Community groups, families and individuals are welcome, as are high school students in need of community hours. Orientation will be provided on planting days. Volunteers should come prepared for all weather (except lightning storms) with sturdy shoes, a hat, sunscreen, work gloves, water, and a shovel if possible. 

In addition to the events already scheduled, NVCA is looking for community groups to take on plants in Stayner, Angus and Adjala-Tosorontio, with dates to be scheduled at the convenience of the group.

It takes a team to plant tens of thousands of trees within a four-week window every spring! Planting leaders coming from NVCA, the Nature Conservancy of Canada, the Nottawasaga Watershed Improvement Program and the South Simcoe Streams Network. These community tree plants are part a larger program to increase streamside habitat and improve water quality in the water​shed.​
