Community Partnership for the Environment

The French River Stewardship Council held its fourth annual “Plant a Tree for the Environment ” day. This year we are proud to say that once again the community supported the event. The directors would like to thank the following supporters and volunteers for their help:

Vale :

Members of the Environmental Group at Vale. They have provided the French River Stewardship Council with seedling trees for the last four years. This year they provided us with 600 White Spruce and 600 Red Pine seedlings.

Municipality of French River:

Public Works who cleared a buffer zone in front of the municipal landfill site for the planting of the trees. They also provided the students with tools and material.

École Secondaire de la Rivière-des-Français:

The students and teachers, who with great enthusiasm planted all the trees in less than 2 hours. The students then policed the area around the landfill site picking up blown debris. Their concern for the environment is important for future generations. Their willingness to work for the betterment of the community is an inspiration to all.

Caisse Populaire de Noëlville Ltée:

Jean-Serge Pharand, General Manager for volunteering to assist the students in the planting of the trees. He was quick to roll up his sleeves and go to work.
