National Tree Day is Sept. 25
Over the past two years the program has seen many members involved with educating students and the public about the environmental benefits of trees. Most events have taken place at schools within a member’s local community. Other events involve members leading a planting event, holding a sale, donating resources, or promoting National Tree Day through social media.
CNLA is taking the lead role on the program, notifying national media about participating members’ activities, as well as posting a map on its website. Members are asked to notify CNLA by registering at www.cnla-acpp.ca/nationaltreeday, or email CNLA communications coordinator, Anne Bowering at email@example.com.
Once a member registers with CNLA, that member’s name will also be registered with Tree Canada. Schools can enter its National Tree Day School Challenge by submitting a picture showing how students celebrated, for a chance to win $1,000.
