Trees for Schools

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

We are currently planning to run our Trees for Schools program at a smaller capacity for Earth Day 2023. We will keep everyone updated here as well as on our social media platforms. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the program coordinator, Alex Robinson, at treesforschools@copernicused.com

Since 2009, we have donated over 198,245 seedlings and 11,527 wildflower packets to Ontario elementary students as a celebration of Earth Day.
