About the event

Save the Date! Saturday November 4 at 10:00am. Pre-register to volunteer here!

The Essex Region Conservation Authority is pleased to share an  upcoming community tree planting event taking place in Harrow, Ontario.   Funding for this event has been provided by ADM Agri-Industries. The  event will take place on the greenway just west of Ferris Rd. Holes will  be excavated in advance to help with breaking the ground. Parking is  available across from the planting site at 2080 Ferris Rd. Event will  take place rain or shine, and will be delayed because of severe weather  only.

This project focuses on increasing tree canopy and biodiversity on a  portion of the Chrysler Canada Greenway that remains completely void of  trees. In total, there will be a mix of 300 small to large potted  native trees and shrubs to be planted.   We encourage pairs/teams to  sign up to plant one to two trees together and youth are welcome to  bring volunteer paperwork to the event for ERCA signoff on  participation.
