Tree planting in Pitt Meadows park for Earth Day

City hall asking residents to pre-register to take part

To celebrate Earth Day in Pitt Meadows, there will be a tree planting event at Bonson Park with parks staff.

The “re-greening” will create habitat and beautify the park. The city says it will oversee the planting of a variety of trees along the perimeter of the popular park, and invites members of the public to take part. First, they must pre-register.

Earth Day events are taking place globally from April 20-22, and the Pitt Meadows activity will happen on April 21 and 22.

To observe COVID-19 safety protocols, the city is limiting the number of participants. All attendees must wear masks, and disposable gloves and sanitized tools will be provided.
