  • GE Power & Water
  • Ian Martin Group
  • VelocityEHS
  • RSA Canada
  • Kohler

A total of 240 Corporate Greening Day volunteers planted 450 trees and removed 12 truckloads of buckthorn, 50 bags of garlic mustard and 6 bags of dog strangling vine.

UPS team removed truckloads of invasive buckthorn at Arbourview Park in November 2017.

Thank you all for a great year of stewardship and tree planting! Oakville’s greenspaces and woodlots are healthier thanks to your hard work! We value each and every individual’s contribution and we look forward to working with you again soon!

Partnering with Oakvillegreen provides employees and corporate groups with a great opportunity to give back to their community, while having an enjoyable outdoor experience with tangible environmental benefits.
