Be An Oakville Tree Hero

BOOKING FOR SPRING 2019 IS OPEN!

We are pleased to invite all Oakville schools (JK/SK to High School) and youth groups to join our OAKVILLE TREE HERO CAMPAIGN!

Thanks to support from the Canadian TREE Fund (Jack Kimmel Research Award 2019), all program and material costs are covered!

EMAIL programs@oakvillegreen.org to BOOK your school or group for one or all of the activities below:


1. CALLING ALL TREE HEROES:

Get your entire school excited about being a TREE HERO by having us visit your school during an assembly! Capes are included!

An Oakvillegreen staff member can visit during your Earth Month assembly or school eco-celebrations or visit your class.

Learn more about Oakville’s urban forest and unique tree species and be inspired to take action, enjoy, care for and protect trees around your school and community.

2. GROW YOUR OWN SUPER TREE:

Engage students in environmental eco-action by participating in a NATIVE TREE SEED GROWING activity and interactive presentation about the life cycle and types of trees.

Science curriculum connections that can be modified according to grade level.

Seed growing materials and supplies provided. Students learn how to care for tree seedlings and understand the benefits of their super tree.

3. JOIN THE TREE WALK CHALLENGE:

Participate in the Oakville-wide TREE WALK CHALLENGE by having as many students as possible join us for a neighbourhood tree walk.

Hunt for some super trees around your school, and learn tree identification skills and interesting facts about trees.

Enjoy the benefits of spending time outdoors under the trees and learn how you can become a local community tree steward.
