Releaf Tree Planting with the City of Surrey  
To celebrate 20 years of NatureKids BC in 2020 we are organizing province/club-wide Tree Planting Explorer Days with a goal to plant 200 trees in our 20th year. Just as our kids themselves grow from care and attention and access to nature, trees are beautiful symbols of investing in our future. Trees are also one of the best ways to fight climate change and tree planting continues to be a deeply impactful way for our members to “take action”. We hope this will be a unifying activity for the whole organization across the province, setting the  foundation for the exciting next 20 years!
We would like to invite your family to plant a shade tree at the Surrey Centre Cemetery. We are going to begin by planting twelve shade trees to grow Surrey’s urban forest. City of Surrey staff will provide all tools and training.  Planters will work as family units (up to five people) to plant one large tree. Wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather. The event will run rain or shine, but could be cancelled in high winds. Pre-registration required for all families. See details below.
Date: Thursday, September 24th
Time: 4pm-6pm (see registration details)
Location: Surrey Centre Cemetery, 16671 Old McLellan Rd

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
