Considering how much we love our trees in Guelph, we’re excited to celebrate National Forest Week this year, which runs from September 17 to 23, 2023. National Forest Week is an annual campaign put on by the Canadian Institute of Forestry to celebrate Canada’s forest heritage and to raise awareness about this valuable and renewable resource. This year’s theme is “supporting biological diversity.” In 2023, we’re on target to plant 20,000 native trees and shrubs in parks, public spaces and natural areas with the help of community partners! In collaborating with community partners, we’ll also engage over 10,000 volunteers in 60 community planting events in parks and natural areas in 2023!
