NIAGARA FALLS, ON - The City of Niagara Falls and the Environmental Action Committee, in partnership with Enbridge and Tree Canada, will be planting 100 native trees throughout the Royal Manor Park area. The tree planting effort will help to reforest areas and provide shade for trail users along the Millennium Recreational Trail, Canada 150 Pathway. 

The event is made possible thanks to the generous support of Enbridge and Tree Canada. The City of Niagara Falls and the Environmental Action Committee have also contributed to the project through tree and supply donations.

Organizers of the event are currently seeking volunteers to help plant the trees. Volunteer space is limited and will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register to volunteer, please visit us online at niagarafalls.ca/volunteer for complete details. This is a great team-building opportunity and for students to acquire Community Service Hours.
