Autumn Planting Event 2021
This year’s Community Planting Event was a great success, and was well attended by some enthusiastic volunteers from the following:
Semiahmoo Rotary Club
Earl Marriott Global Citizens Club
Surrey Youth Stewardship Squad
Surrey Natural Areas Partnership (SNAP)
City of Surrey, Parks Recreation and Culture, Urban Forestry
Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society
A total of 300 trees and shrubs, all native species to the area, were planted.
Luckily, Mother Nature waited until the planting was nearly done to “water”the new plants.
