(North Bay, ON – September 10, 2019) – Chippewa Creek EcoPath gets another boost on Sept 14, when 30 volunteers plant 500 new trees and shrubs as part of the 10th Annual TD Tree Days. This planting will help provide more tree cover for the city, build climate change resiliency and help reduce run-off to Chippewa Creek.
TD Tree Days has been bringing people together since 2010 and is helping to create a more vibrant planet by growing and enhancing green spaces, contributing to TD’s Ready Commitment target of helping plant 1 million trees by 2030. Over 390,000 native trees and shrubs have been planted in communities across North America through TD Tree Days. This fall, 10,000 volunteers will come together to enhance over 100 green spaces with more than 38,000 trees and shrubs.
Together with TD employees, their families and friends, and community volunteers, TD Tree Days helps create green spaces that are critical to building more resilient and livable communities.
In 2018, TD launched a new corporate citizenship platform called The Ready Commitment – a multi-year initiative to help open doors to a more inclusive and sustainable tomorrow by supporting initiatives and programs within four areas: Financial Security, Vibrant Planet, Connected Communities and Better Health.
North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority is hosting the TD Tree Days and joins TD in inviting community members to the Sept 14th planting and to help with the greening along Chippewa Creek. NBMCA has been planting trees and restoring shorelines within the watershed for the past five years as part of the Restore Your Shore Program.
