Planting 1 Million Trees within 100KM of Downtown Calgary

CALGARY, June 16, 2014 /CNW/ - With the one year anniversary of southern Alberta's most damaging floods upon us, The Carbon Farmer (www.thecarbonfarmer.ca) is proud to announce a plan to heal and enhance the Bow River watershed - with many many more trees.

Arlene Dickinson, from CBC's Dragons' Den, will be kicking off the 2014 planting efforts at the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area as part of a "forest friendraiser" event on Wednesday June 18th from 8:00AM-2:00PM. Those trees and the thousands to follow will be focused on the ecosystems near the Bow River and the creeks, wetlands and natural springs that flow into it. Forests help slow and absorb water, acting as an important natural flood defence.

Planting projects within the City limits are also underway in coordination with the City of Calgary parks department. Through the power of crowdfunding on Alberta Boostr (http://albertaboostr.ca/) everyone can pitch in and have a seedling planted on their behalf for $3.50 at Bowness Park.

The Carbon Farmer, which began on a third generation family farm in northern Alberta, has been planting native trees, shrubs and grasses for habitat restoration and carbon credits since 2007.
