Cogeco employees to plant 300 trees and shrubs in Hamilton and Burlington this weekend

Cogeco employees will work this weekend, planting 300 trees and shrubs in Hamilton and Burlington as part of the company’s second annual Community Involvement Day.

In partnership with Conservation Halton, which works to protect, restore, and manage natural resources from lake to escarpment, 80 Cogeco employees will plant at Joe Sams Leisure Park in the woods bordering Grindstone Creek on Saturday.


A Cogeco spokesperson says the planting will enhance the understorey of the forest, increase the diversity of native plant species, and enhance the habitat for birds and wildlife in the area.

Joe Sams Leisure Park is located near Waterdown Memorial Park.

Grindstone Creek is in the Great Lakes Basin, a tributary of Lake Ontario at the western end of the lake. The creek begins Lake Medad in Burlington.

Each year, Cogeco chooses a theme as part of its community involvement. This year’s is “planting roots.”
