This January, students in 16 London schools planted over 2000 native seedlings as part of the School Community Tree Challenge. In the coming months they'll nurture their young trees and in the spring, will bring trees home to be planted in their yards and neighbourhoods.
Winter is a great time to cuddle up with a blanket, and read a good book. So, we thought we would share what we're reading this month. Bringing Nature Home draws important connections between planting native plants and supporting our wildlife presented in the format of an easy-to-understand illustrated novel.
The first Million Tree Challenge Awards were presented to five well-deserving Partners in London’s Million Tree Challenge on October 20, 2016 at the annual A Toast to Trees event. These awards recognize great contributions by businesses, organizations and individuals who are making a difference through their support of tree planting in London, Ontario.
