On September 24, over 70 SGI-Canada youth joined Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) located in Ontario, in its youth tree planting initiative. The CVC is a community-based environmental organization dedicated to conserving, restoring, developing and managing natural resources on the watershed of the Credit River. A total of 250 trees were planted and one of the participants remarked that this initiative ensures that future generations would be able to enjoy the trees. SGI Canada has participated in this annual event more than 10 times.
