On September 20, 2014, two sites were selected and 210 native trees and shrubs, in addition to three red maple trees in honour of the three RCMP officers who lost their lives last summer, were planted along the Petitcodiac waterfront trail in downtown Moncton. Petitcodiac Riverkeeper was involved in the organization of this activity, which promotes habitat restoration and biodiversity enhancement.
Launched in 2010, TD Tree Days provide TD Bank employees, family members, friends and the community the opportunity to volunteer and demonstrate their commitment to being environmental stewards.
Petitcodiac Riverkeeper’s new president, Mr. Paul N. Belliveau, and past president Mr. Pierre Landry, participated in this event. Mr. Mario Cyr took on the role of “TD Tree Advisor” on behalf of Petitcodiac Riverkeeper, with support from Mr. Dan Hicks and the City of Moncton’s Department of Parks and Recreation. Mr. Alain Curling from TD Bank was designated as “TD Site Leader” for this activity. Over forty volunteers, TD Bank employees and their families were in attendance.
