Celebrate Earth Day with shoreline naturalization planting

Filed under: ,
April 5, 2016 - Celebrated every year on April 22, Earth Day is the largest environmental event in the world. More than six million Canadians, including nearly every school-aged child, participate in an Earth Day activity within their communities.

The community is invited to join The City of Kawartha Lakes in partnership with Kawartha Conservation, Hydro One, and The Land Between to help plant a combination of shrubs, trees, perennials, and grasses along the shoreline. Species include sandbar willow, big bluestem, silky dogwood, red osier dogwood and highbush cranberry. Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring a reusable water bottle and snacks, and if you have a special shovel you prefer to use.

Date: Friday April 22, 2016 (Earth Day)
9:30 am - noon or from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm (or all day)
Rivera Park (Lindsay Street North, Lindsay)
Registration: or telephone: 705-324-9411 extension 1354 or

Planting is one of easiest and fun ways to show your love to the earth for earth day. It gives back to the water bodies, because they give so much to us. Protecting our water bodies helps protect our drinking, swimming, fishing and boating water. At the same time, we’ll be improving habitat and nutrition for wildlife and pollinators.

Creating a healthier environment is one of the City of Kawartha Lakes’ top three strategic goals. Specific priorities under these goals include protecting and enhancing water quality and protecting natural features. The City partners with local organizations and businesses on environmental initiatives on a regular basis and we encourage our residents to get involved in this Earth Day community project.
