About the event

We are excited to host another tree planting event in West Windsor! Funding for this initiative has been provided by the Gordie Howe International Bridge Community Benefits Plan. Thank you to the City of Windsor for providing this new and exciting tree planting location.

Event Details

The tree planting event happens along the trails of Malden Park near the new Gordie Howe International Bridge observation tower.  Parking is available at the Malden Park parking lots off Matchette Rd. Volunteers will then use the trail system to arrive at ERCAs event headquaters and community outreach trailer located at google maps - volunteer check in.  ERCA and WDBA staff will kick start the event with introductions and together we will walk as a group to the planting location.
