Spring 2023 Tree Planting at Claireville Conservation Area

PPG Members Plant 500 Trees!

On Saturday, May 27th, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority’s (TRCA) Partners in Project Green (PPG) Members met at Claireville Conservation Area in Brampton to participate in PPG’s Spring 2023 Tree Planting event. PPG Members, family, and friends planted 500 native trees and shrubs working to increase forest cover at this restoration site and contribute to local climate change mitigation initiatives. With the sun shining and not a cloud in the sky, it was a beautiful day for members to participate in a healthy outdoor activity and network in a casual setting.

Honouring PPG Members and Presenters

PPG would like to recognize that some of the trees planted on this day were planted in honour of PPG’s Circular Economy Leaders and Energy Leaders Consortium Members for their hard work and dedication to waste reduction and energy conservation over the last year. Additionally, some of the trees were planted in honour of presenters from PPG’s 2022 Fall Forum including Author, Tom Rand & Conservation Ecologist and Indigenous Engagement Specialist, Gary Pritchard.
