Canada 150 Legacy Tree Project
Canada 150 will be rooted within St. Albert for generations to come thanks to a special Legacy Tree Ceremony that took place on September 8, 2017. The ceremony acknowledged the funding partnership between the City of St. Albert, CN EcoConnexions, Tree Canada and Communities in Bloom.
As part of the City’s Canada 150 Legacy Tree project, a total of 16 Autumn Blaze Maple trees were planted at St. Albert elementary schools, with another 4,000 Canadian Shield rose bushes provided to households that participated in this year’s Block Parties.
The special ceremony on September 8th unveiled the final Autumn Blaze Maple Tree, which was planted in the newly created Canada 150 Reflection Area, located beside the Cenotaph on St. Anne Street. A special recognition plaque was also donated by Tree Canada.
The City’s Canada 150 Legacy Tree project was funded under the CN EcoConnexions – From the Ground Up program and included $25,000 from CN, $25,000 from the City and $1,600 from Tree Canada.
