Chippewa Creek EcoPath tree planting one of more than 100 events happening coast-to-coast.

On September 15, 500 new trees will be planted by more than 20 volunteers at Chippewa Creek EcoPath as part of the ninth annual TD Tree Days.  As part of a larger commitment to plant one million trees by 2030, TD's flagship volunteer program brings together more than 8,000 volunteers at over 100 sites across Canada to build healthy and vibrant communities.   This planting will help provide more tree cover for the city and help run-off to Chippewa Creek.

Together with TD employees, their families and friends, and community volunteers, TD Tree Days helps to open doors for a more inclusive and sustainable tomorrow by protecting, preserving and enhancing green spaces across the country.  Throughout September and October, over 35,000 trees will be planted across the Canadian landscape.

NBMCA is hosting the TD Tree Days and joins TD in inviting community members to the September 15 planting to help with the greening along Chippewa Creek.  NBMCA has been planting trees and restoring shorelines within the watershed for the past four years as part of the Restore Your Shore Program.
