Rotary Tree Planting and Earth Day with Laurentian SETAC @ Guelph Lake
Apr 21 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Rotary Tree Planting and Earth Day with Laurentian SETAC @ Guelph Lake | Ontario | Canada

Join us in greening up the planet this year’s Rotary Tree Planting & Earth Day Event on April 21st, 2018 at Guelph Lake.   The Rotary Club of Guelph has pledges each year to purchase 5000 trees and organize a one-day tree-planting blitz at Guelph Lake with the long-range goal of returning 100 acres to forest cover by the year 2020.  For the last few years Laurentian SETAC members have participated in “The Tree Canopy Challenge” to helped the community by planting trees.  This year, year 11, we will take the opportunity to fill in areas where we have had less than satisfactory survival rates, mainly caused by dry weather conditions during the summer following our planting day.

Please see the flyer for more information and/or if you are interested in participating RSVP directly to Gerald Tetreault (gerald.tetreault@canada.ca).
