Season: 
Spring
Location:

It was a great day for trees as 3,000 native trees and shrubs were planted by 1,200 volunteers. ReForest London joined this Scoutrees project. We provided training for about 100 "planting coaches" in advance of April 24. Then on April 24, we helped lead planting on the west side of the Veterans Memorial Parkway between Trafalgar and Admiral.

It was quite a site to see hundreds of volunteers on both sides of the Parkway planting 1,000 trees. An additional 2,000 trees and shrubs were planted in parks throughout the city.

ReForest London volunteers included corporate groups, an English as a Second Language class from Lorne Ave PS, high school students seeking volunteers hours, volunteers from St. Leonard's Society, and many families.
