Students at St. Thomas Aquinas CSS participate in Canopy Project with 50 trees planted

STACSS Tree Planting

On Oct. 15, students at St. Thomas Aquinas CSS聽planted 50 sugar maple trees on school property in partnership with the Kawartha Lakes Canopy Project. Working聽with a local supplier, those involved worked with聽the supplied trees, wire, mesh and mulch.

What began as a simple initiative to increase the urban canopy within public spaces in Kawartha Lakes has blossomed into a student-centred cause that deepens their connection to nature. The Canopy Project has evolved into a remarkable project that has empowered youth throughout the region to make a positive change. Last year, students at St. Mary CES in Lindsay participated in the same project and were聽recipients of the CKL Environmental Hero of the Year Award.
