TD Green Streets Tree Planting Project
The Town of Kamsack will be planting 135 trees in three areas over the next few weeks as part of the TD Green Streets Grant. We successfully applied for the project in early 2014 and were one of the 21 communities that will benefit from the grant that was created in partnership with Tree Canada. A variety of species including Aspen, Ash, Maple, Pine & Spruce will be planted in Kamsack in three areas, these include parts of Saulteaux Avenue, Nykolaishen Drive and Main Street. If you would like to volunteer to help plant trees please contact Kev the Recreation Director on 542-2044 or come out on Saturday, October 18th to plant the final trees.
