The Rotary Tree Planting challenge was initiated when the President of Rotary International, Ian Riseley (Rotary Club of Sandringham, Australia), asked ALL 1.2 million Rotarians across the World to plant ONE tree. In response, the Georgetown Rotarians set out to contribute to this goal by organizing a club tree planting event. 

On April 28th, in celebration of Earth Week, 19 members of the Georgetown Rotary Club and volunteers gathered to plant 19 trees in Joseph Gibbons Park, on Delrex Boulevard. (Tree varieties include: Red Maples, Sugar Maples, Paper Birch, Red Oak). Georgetown Rotarians are thrilled to contribute locally to the Rotary Tree Planting Challenge, as the
outcome Worldwide is significant. Our collective efforts will result in over a million trees placed in forests and open park spaces which are under threat from disappearing.
 
“Environmental sustainability…is, and must be, everyone’s concern.” 2017-2018 RI PRESIDENT IAN RISELEY.
 
We would like to thank the support received by the Town of Halton Hills, Recreation and Parks and Planning and Sustainability as we planned our tree planting event.
 
We plan to do more in the future! If you are interested to contribute to a future tree planting please contact our club http://rotarygeorgetown-on.ca/
