Group Planting 1,000 Trees in Cape Breton, Today
The Bras d’Or Lake Biosphere Reserve Association is organizing the planting of a thousand trees in Cape Breton, today.
The red spruce seedlings will be planted in a reclaimed limestone quarry in Irish Cove off Route 4.
The symbolic goal is to help offset the carbon emissions created when world leaders meet in Charlevoix, Quebec for the G7 Summit, next month.
The planting is part of a national effort organized by Global Affairs Canada.
The trees will be planted by students from the Strait area campus of the Community College, Eskasoni and Chapel Island.
The planting is due to start at 10:00 this morning.
