It might be nearing winter, but Calgary is going to be getting a little greener this weekend.

As part of TD Tree Days, a program that aims to plant one million trees by 2030, volunteers in Calgary will be doing their part by planting 750 trees throughout Edworthy Park and Griffith Woods.

The event is part of 100s like it taking place across the country from September 14 to October 27, with an estimated total of 38,000 trees being planted this year.

The Edworthy Park tree planting was held on Saturday, September 14 from 9 am to noon, while the Griffith Park planting will be held on Saturday, October 19, from 9 am to noon.

The Griffith Park planting was supposed to be held at the end of September, but the snowstorm that left 24 cm of snowfall in its wake forced organizers to reschedule.

Any and all are welcome to participate in the outdoor events — all you need to do to register is to head over to the TD Tree Days website, look up Calgary, and choose the event you’d like to volunteer for.

The TD Tree Days program has planted over 3,94,620 trees since it started in 2010.
