OCAYS Tree Planting! End of the year celebration!

June 2 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

We have had an amazing 2017-2018! Our OCA Youths Stewards participated in many different activities where they were able to change their community.

We are closing the season with a big tree planting event. Please join us and earn your volunteer hours!

Where: Shell Park (3307 Lake Shore Rd W, Oakville, ON)

When: Saturday, June 2nd 2018 from 10am to 1pm (Lunch will be provided)

Register here.

Here are some tips to have a great tree planting experience:

  • Please be prompt – we’ll teach you how to plant trees at the beginning of the event.
  • Come dressed for the weather and working in the dirt. We plant rain or shine! If it is sunny don’t forget sunscreen or a brimmed hat.
  • Wear sturdy shoes – no sandals or flip-flops! We will have gloves on hand, but bring your favourite pair (labeled) if you like.
  • Bring water in a reusable bottle.
  • Bring a shovel (labeled) if you have one, but we have many to lend you if you don’t.
  • Secondary students can earn volunteer hours at our events. Don’t forget your forms!
  • Consider walking, cycling, carpooling, or taking the bus to our events. 
  • Watch our quick how to video and learn how to plant a tree!

Thank you to the Town of Oakville, the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Oakville Community Foundation for supporting our tree planting initiatives.
