TD Tree Days
Thank you for supporting the TD Tree Days planting along the River Walk in Minden. This year, we reached a significant milestone and planted 500 trees and shrubs and 300 shoreline perennials with the assistance of some 25 volunteers from the community, TD and Haliburton Highlands Land Trust. Since TD Tree Days began in 2010, 300,000 trees have been planted across Canada and we could not have done it without you!
