NVCA looking for volunteers for Conservation Area tree plant

If you enjoy doing things to help the environment, the Nottawasaga Conservation Authority is looking for volunteers to plant trees at the Tottenham Conservation Area on Saturday, October 16.

Volunteers will help to plant native wildflowers, trees, and shrubs to enhance pollinator habitat in the park.

Volunteers are asked to arrive wearing closed-toed boots or shoes, and to bring water and lunch as well as COVID accessories.

They are also asked bring a shovel and gloves, however extras will be available for those that don’t have those items.

The event will take place rain or shine, but will be cancelled in the event of a lightning storm.

Due to COVID limitations, participants must pre-register.

Strict health and safety protocols will be in place during the plant to protect both NVCA staff and volunteers, and all equipment required for the day will be sanitized before use.

The event will coincide with two other NVCA volunteer planting events happening in the region over a two-week period that designed to help pollinator planting.
