Embracing Green Initiatives Together!

A heartfelt thank you to all those who came out and supported our Great Lakes Local Action tree planting event on Oct.14th!

Our community witnessed a remarkable turnout, with over 70 participants spanning all generations, coming together to preserve the health of our waterways and sow the seeds of a greener, more sustainable future for all. 

Thanks to your dedication, we planted a whopping 123+ native trees and shrubs along the Port Hope waterfront trail. These acts of eco-consciousness are the foundation upon which we build a brighter tomorrow. 

The seeds of change have been sown, and we can’t wait to witness their growth. Stay tuned for our exciting GLLA finale event, scheduled for mid-November! 

Let’s continue to nurture our environment and our shared dream of a greener world. Together, we make a difference!
