An initiative that started earlier this year will soon see additional trees spruce up Coronation Park in Sarnia.

Climate Action Sarnia-Lambton and IODE Errol Egremont are hosting a tree planting event on Saturday in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

IODE Errol Egremont received a $5,000 grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage earlier this year in order to plant 35 native trees.

The tree planting event will take place between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Attendees are asked to bring gloves, shovels, and durable footwear.

The rain date for the event is October 2.
