Canon and Evergreen Help Thirty Community Groups Across Canada Plant Native Trees with $150,000 in Grants
Date:9/24/2013

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

Evergreen is pleased to announce the 2013 recipients of Canon’s Take Root Program. Throughout the fall, 30 community groups and volunteers across Canada will restore local green spaces and steward tree-planting events.

Canon’s Take Root Program, presented by Evergreen, provides a $5,000 grant and a Canon PowerShot digital camera to 30 community groups in Canada. In its second year of a three-year partnership, the program supports community action across the country and adds more than 7,500 trees to Canadian towns, cities and green spaces annually.

"We are excited for the opportunity to engage community members in taking action and learning about nature in their neighborhood," says David Foster, Urban Biodiversity Coordinator and volunteer with the Sierra Club Canada - Atlantic Canada Chapter and Take Root grant recipient. "The funds from Evergreen and Canon Canada not only help us create a hands-on experience for learning about nature, but foster a long-term connection to the green spaces that bring our communities together."

Some of the community projects from the 2013 grant program include:

  • Sierra Club Canada, Atlantic Canada Chapter- Halifax, NS: A grassroots organization that empowers Atlantic Canadians to protect and restore the planet through education and political advocacy. The Halifax Regional Municipality Diversity Project will restore degraded landscape at Hemlock Ravine Park with native tree-plantings, as well as empower local volunteers to become familiar with the diversity of plants and animals found in their neighbourhoods.
  • Nuu-chah-nuluth/West Coast Vancouver Island Aquatic Management Society – Port Alberni, BC: A forum for individuals and organizations to participate in the integrated management of aquatic resources on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. The Dry Creek Restoration Pro
