Join Earth Day Hamilton-Burlington and partners Royal Botanical Gardens and Bay Area Restoration Council in planting hundreds of trees to restore woodland cover and pulling out the invasive species that threaten the biodiversity of this natural area.

Do the Tim Hortons Earth Day 5K Walk & Fun Run, which leaves Bayfront Park at 10am, follows the Waterfront Trail and arrives at Princess Point just in time for the planting festival (register here). Or simply show up at Princess Point to join in the planting festivities – take the Earth Day Shuttle (free) to get there (route & times TBA).
