Cogeco staff and their family members took part in the telecommunications and media company’s second annual Community Involvement Day by enhancing a local greenspace in South Stormont.
The Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) and the Township of South Stormont facilitated the Cogeco staff’s planting of ten white birch trees at Lakeview Park, a riparian area on the bank of the St. Lawrence River, located on Avonmore Road just South of County Road 2, between Long Sault and Cornwall.
The trees will serve to improve riparian tree cover, provide shelter, food, and habitat for wildlife, and enhance the visitor experience at the public waterfront park.
Through its forestry program, the RRCA has planted over one million trees locally since 1994, strengthening the area’s tree cover, flood resilience, wildlife habitat, and the overall sustainability of local watersheds.
