Last Chance Tree Planters,--Tree planting season has begun! We are BACK this fall to plant trees in parks across London - with a few new safety precautions. You are invited to join us in October to make our city healthier and more beautiful. Many of us have spent a lot of time using public outdoor spaces this year, so let's do our part to keep them green and leafy for generations to come!
**New this Year**
Usually ReForest London tree planting events are open to the public, but to keep all planters safe, we are placing a limit on the number of volunteers at each event. To do that, we require anyone who wants to plant trees to register in advance. To sign up, visit our Eventbrite pageThis will allow us to ensure that we abide by physical distancing recommendations set forth by our local Health Unit. We will also be requesting that planters wear a face mask, and, when possible, bring their own gloves and shovel. Don't have your own equipment? Not to worry - we'll have extra shovels for you to use, which our staff and volunteers will be cleaning between use.No planting experience is necessary, as our staff and Tree Specialist volunteers will provide training on-site. All ages are welcome, so register yourself, your family and friends and get ready for a fun time! For more information about tree planting with ReForest London, click here.
