October 26, 2019 was a beautiful sunny autumn day that provided perfect weather conditions for twenty CPA members and candidates to volunteer their Saturday morning planting trees and shrubs at the Godwin Farm Biodiversity Preserve Park in Surrey BC.
This family friendly chapter community engagement event was organized in collaboration with the City of Surrey to support Surrey’s urban forest. The #CPABCgiving team helped plant trees and shrubs that will improve the wildlife habitat in the area.
Surrey Parks staff provided training to the volunteers starting first with how to handle shovels safely. Volunteers were then tasked with selecting their shovel before being deployed into the meadow.
In the meadow, parks staff laid out various shrubs, rose bushes and trees to be planted. The volunteer team then dug holes and started planting.
Thank you to all the volunteers who contributed. We’re #CPAproud of your contribution in making Surrey a more beautiful place.
