Oakville Park


Join us as we plant native trees and plants this year in parks and natural areas throughout Oakville. Planting trees is a fun way to get outdoors for families and individuals of all ages. Bring the family or come as a group and experience the pride in planting trees together to give our urban forest a boost!

Here are some tips to have a great tree planting experience:

  1. Please register by sending an email to: programs@oakvillegreen.org.
  2. Please be prompt – we’ll teach you how to plant trees at the beginning of the event.
  3. Come dressed for the weather and working in the dirt. We plant rain or shine! If it is sunny don’t forget sunscreen or a brimmed hat.
  4. Wear sturdy shoes – no sandals or flip-flops! We will have gloves on hand, but bring your favourite pair (labeled) if you like.
  5. Bring water in a reusable bottle.
  6. Bring a shovel (labeled) if you have one, but we have many to lend you if you don’t.
  7. Secondary students can earn volunteer hours at our events. Don’t forget your forms!
  8. Consider walking, cycling, carpooling, or taking the bus to our events.
