Trees for Schools

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

Since 2009, we have donated over 203,740 seedlings and 13,477 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.

There are still some tree seedlings and wildflower seed packs available. 

Submit your request

This year, we are providing an opportunity for your classroom to receive either tree seedlings, wildflower seed packets, or one all-expense paid field trip to Copernicus' Nature Reserve this May or June. Please note: the field trip option has been filled.

Keep your eye on this page for exciting pictures of this year’s participants and their events. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to the program coordinator, Alandra Tideman, at
