Lisgar Tree Planting | September 2016

Many Feathers in partnership with the Lisgar Resident's Association is hosting a tree planting event in Lisgar Fields. The event runs from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm! Everyone is welcome! 

Here are 3 reasons why trees are a good thing for the Lisgar community and why you should join us for our planting event! 

  1. Provide shelter and help the local wildlife thrive.
    Creating parks and pathways is amazing for the community but can have a big impact on local wildlife. New trees provide shelter and support for existing habitats. 
  2. Cleaner air for all! 
    Trees absorb odours and pollutant gases from their surroundings and act as filters. This means the more trees, the more filters at work! This is especially useful near road ways where car pollutants have a negative effect on air quality. 
  3. Trees prevent climate change!
    Climate change is a pressing issue that affects everyone. By planting trees we help reduce the excess CO2 from the atmosphere. In a year an acre of mature trees absorb the amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car 26,000 miles. That's a huge impact! 

Volunteers will plant trees in support of One Million Trees Mississauga. Let's help plant One Million trees in Mississauga by 2032! 

Please wear comfortable clothing and proper shoes! The event runs from 9:30 am - 12:00 pm at 3805 Doug Leavens Blvd. Volunteers 14 years or younger must be supervised by a parent/guardian.
