This coming Wednesday, September 29th, the University of Guelph is hosting an all-day tree planting event. The combined efforts of community members and the university’s staff and students will help make a greener campus by planting over 600 trees! And for all those that register, there will also be free snacks and drinks included.
The trees will be planted beside Lambton Hall across from Lang Way (see map below).
Extreme heat early this summer has sparked one of the worst wildfire seasons on record. We’ve seen smoke cover cities, flooding, droughts and just heard from the IPCC that this is a “code red” moment when it comes to tackling the climate emergency. And, this is all happening with the specter of an election on the horizon. That’s why we’ve got a plan to bring climate action to the forefront of the Canadian political landscape but we can’t do it without you.
This year, will your Christmas be eco-friendly? “Bake them a cake, write them a poem, give them a kiss, tell them a joke, but for god’s sake stop trashing the planet to tell someone you care. All it shows is that you don’t.” (George Monbiot) / Eco-friendly Christmas Gift Ideas
