In collaboration with Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), HNP hosted our first tree-planting event at Chris Gibson Park, Brampton. Our team successfully planted 100+ trees consisting of Hackberry, Red maple, White Birth, Smooth Rose, and Nine-bark tree species.  Thank you so much to our 40+ volunteers who came out and sponsors who supported our events, and a special thank you for Credit Valley Conservation for collaborating with us and an additonal thank you to Lights of All for sponsoring our event!
