Tree Planting Volunteers

The Association for Canadian Educational Resources (ACER) is seeking experienced volunteers to help plant and monitor trees. Volunteers will be responsible for ensuring that all trees are planted according to ACER’s protocol.

We have opportunities this spring to help children plant trees on their schoolyard in Toronto, Brampton, Niagara Falls, and Welland. The planting dates are:

  • April 20, 2017: Burnt Elm P.S., Brampton
  • May 9, 2017: Blessed Archbishop Romero C.S.S., Toronto
  • May 12, 2017: Diamond Trail P.S., Welland
  • June 6, 2017: Princess Margaret P.S., Niagara Falls

A map of the planting locations is available here.

The schools we’ll be planting at will become part of ACER’s growing Planting for Change (P4C) network of schoolyard planting sites that act as mini-climate change outdoor classrooms/labs.

If this sounds like an exciting opportunity to you, fill out the form below. We’ll get back to you and schedule a phone call to discuss what a typical planting day with ACER looks like. For more information, contact Mike McMillan at or 905-891-6004.

Bonus: In addition, we are hosting Earth Day tree planting events in Mississauga at Richard Jones Park and John C. Pallett Park on April 22nd. To register for these events, please visit
