Trees for Schools

Thank you for your interest in our Trees for Schools program. 

Since 2009, we have donated over 198,245 seedlings and 11,527 wildflower seed packets to Ontario elementary students in celebration of Earth Day each year. Copernicans hand-pack the seedlings and seed packets, which are then shipped to each school. We also include digital resources for educators to support their planting events.

Our 2023 program has some exciting changes! Please click here to learn more.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the program coordinator, Alex Robinson, at
