Trees clean our air, provide shade, prevent erosion, and provide vital food and shelter for wildlife. Join Kawartha Land Trust (KLT) for a community tree planting and mapping event. Help us green our community one tree at a time!

We will have 175 tree seedlings available (one per registrant) for you to pick up and plant in your own backyard or community. KLT will also have 25 trees available to plant at our Dance Nature Sanctuary in Selwyn if you don’t have a place of your own to plant a tree.

When you register, we will ask you to let us know the location of where you intend to plant your tree as we plan to create a community map to show all of the trees and the collective impact of individual actions!

Each registration offers you one tree, if your family or friends would like multiple trees, register each person separately.

-Dance Nature Sanctuary near Lakefield
-Fleming College Frost Campus, Lindsay
-Kawartha Land Trust office at The Mount Community Centre, Peterborough
