Niagara Falls, Ontario – In partnership with the Niagara Parks Foundation, Niagara Parks will host its annual Community Tree Planting Day at the Niagara Glen Nature Centre on Saturday, October 15, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
Made possible thanks to the generous donations received through the Niagara Parks Foundation, over 100 native trees will be planted during this initiative, which provides a fun and meaningful opportunity to directly support the critical reforestation of this rare Carolinian forest canopy located along the Niagara River corridor. As cooler weather arrives and vibrant fall colours are revealed across the Niagara Gorge, conditions are now ideal for fall planting.
Participants are encouraged to round out this memorable fall experience in nature with a hike in the Niagara Gorge, or take in the scenic views found along the 56-kilometre Niagara Parkway and Niagara River Recreation Trail, stretching from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.

Registered participants will meet at the Niagara Glen Nature Centre on Saturday, October 15 from 10 a.m. – 12 noon, rain or shine.
