Beautiful Partnerships Should Always Start With Tree-Planting

The Street Tree Project is a pretty wonderful initiative to improve air quality and greenery in Hamilton's urban neighbourhoods, but what's especially wonderful is that it isn't the only project with these goals! Environment Hamilton is in the process of a new air quality surveillance program, where they're measuring levels of pollutants in the air by using monitors attached to bicycles. The Hamilton Naturalists' Club is also hard at work, conducting an urban tree inventory. Of course, it only makes sense that we all work together and what better way to start than by tree planting in the Amaolo Nature Sanctuary!
If you'd like more information about Environment Hamilton or the Naturalists' Club and TreesCount, take a look at their websites, and of course if you're looking for more ways to get involved check out the OPIRG facebook page as well!
