Saskatchewan Tree for Life Program at Beaver Creek Conservation Area

May 29th & 30th: The Saskatchewan Association of Watersheds and its member watershed groups are excited to announce the launch of the Saskatchewan Tree for Life Program!

The goal of the program is to educate and spread awareness of climate change and to promote positive environmental change in Saskatchewan. A young tree can store up to 13 lbs of CO2, and at 10 years old, a tree can store up to 48 lbs of CO2!

With financial support from Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), the Saskatchewan Tree for Life Program will kick off with an initiative that will see 24,000 free trees be planted across Saskatchewan! By planting trees, a person can do their part in helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Representatives from the South Saskatchewan River Watershed Stewards will be on site at Beaver Creek on May 29th & 30th between noon and 4pm to promote this program. Stop by for your free tree!
