Trees for Schools

Students planting trees

 

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

Since 2009, we have donated over: 

207, 647 seedlings planted since 2009

 

15,483 wild flower seed packets donated since 2009

We continue to donate to Ontario elementary students in celebration of Earth Day. 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. We are currently planning next year’s Trees for Schools program. We will keep everyone updated here as well as on our social media platforms as plans are finalized. If you have any questions, please reach out to the program coordinator, Alandra Tideman, at treesforschools@copernicused.com.
