The Truro Tree Committee and Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources are hosting the event, which also involves Bridgeway Academy school children.
Students will assist in the planting of a sugar maple on Park Road, just inside Victoria Park. It is along the street between the Truro Tennis Club and the baseball field.
Each of the Bridgeway Academy children will then receive a red spruce seedling, the provincial tree, from DNR that they can plant at home.
Also in commemoration of Earth Day, at approximately 11:45 a.m., the Truro Tree Committee will join the Town of Truro, County of Colchester and the Living Earth Council in having an Earth Day proclamation presented, followed by a tree-planting ceremony. There will be students in attendance from several different schools.
