Guelph, Ont., April 8, 2024 – The City of Guelph is cohosting its second annual Earth Day tree planting event in partnership with the Rotary Club of Guelph and Trees for Guelph. The event will feature an environmental fair with booths, food and entertainment.

Event details

Location: Hanlon Creek Forest, 335 Laird Road. Parking (including for bikes) site access and environmental fair will be at this location.
Time: 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Trees, shovels, mulch, pails and planting instructions will all be provided. All you need to do is come out ready to plant! We’ll have our Water Wagon onsite so you can stay hydrated while you plant. Please remember to bring a refillable water bottle to help reduce plastic waste.

Leave your mark

Trees help us recover from severe weather caused by climate change. Our urban forest helps clean the air and keep us cool, saves energy and prevents flooding. Spending time near trees and in natural spaces can also improve our physical and mental health!

Plant trees, build corridors for wildlife, and help fight climate change close to home. Leave your mark on the world this Earth Day by planting trees and being the change for future generations.

Last year, we planted nearly 1,200 native trees and shrubs; let’s make this year even bigger than 2023!
