Great Volunteer Opportunity
Central Lake Ontario Conservation’s (CLOCA) Earth Day is Every Day event is a great opportunity for families, scout and guide groups, churches, businesses and students to assist and enjoy nature.
“We would like to say “Thank You” to RBC as this is their 8th year of sponsoring the event by purchasing planting stock and providing staff to help plant,” says Patricia Lowe, Director of Community Engagement with Central Lake Ontario Conservation. “Not only will these trees help fight climate change but once mature they will also provide wildlife habitat and help enhance groundwater resources.”
