City staff will join partner representatives from Tree Canada and Telus along with approximately 50 volunteers to plant over 75 trees to celebrate National Tree Day.

During National Forest Week, Canadians are invited to learn more about Canada’s forest heritage and raise awareness about this valuable and renewable resource.

Date: Wednesday, September 21
Time: 10 to 11 a.m.
Location: Eglinton Flats Park, 101 Emmett Ave.
