On Saturday September 24th, Rotary Loves Trees(RLT) and its major partners, the City of Belleville Green Task Force and the Quinte Conservation Authority planted 800 trees and shrubs in Haig Park.
Thanks to support from the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, (TDFEF), RLT contributed 400 trees to the plant. The $10,000 donation RLT received from TDFEF last year has enabled it to plant over 4,000 trees in the past 12 months. Since its inception in 2020, RLT has planted over 6,000 trees.
The Haig Park plant was a truly “community ” effort with Rotarians and friends being joined by community volunteers from as far away as Picton, volunteers from TD, and staff and volunteers from Quinte Conservation and the City of Belleville Green Task Force.
