Tribute Tree program honours loved ones

A display board in the Thomas A. Beckett Living Forest in the Dundas Valley Conservation Area explains the Tribute Tree program.

Last spring, the Foundation was proud to unveil our new Tribute Tree program with the help of our lead donors at the Dodsworth & Brown Funeral Home – Ancaster Chapel. The program helps donors to recognize a friend or loved one with a donation in support native tree and shrub plantings. Those plantings take place where they are needed most on conservation lands across the Hamilton watershed. The donations, however, are recognized in the Dundas Valley Conservation Area on signs in the Thomas A. Beckett Living Forest.

To date, the program has raised over $19,000 for native species plantings, vastly exceeding our initial expectations. While the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic prevents us from hosting volunteer plantings right now, we look forward to putting these funds to work in the months to come.

To everyone who chosen our program to honour a friend or loved one: thank you!

Thank you to all the awesome volunteers who participated in our trail clean up last Friday to clean up the Hamilton-to-Brantford Rail Trail. Your efforts resulted in 300kg (that's 661 lbs!) of garbage removed from the Trail!
