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)
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.
