Together we can ReTree YYC

In September 2014, Calgary experienced a late-summer snow storm causing extensive and severe damage to over 1 million trees. ReTree YYC was created to respond and recover from this disaster. The primary goal of ReTree YYC is to work with citizens to encourage the proper planting and maintenance of our urban forest. By helping Calgarians plant and maintain trees on both public and private property, we hope to make the city landscape better for generations to come.

ReTree YYC will be hosting 4 evening events, All About Trees, at the Varsity Community Centre during the month of July.  These events are free to attend but prior registration is required.
