Media Advisory/Photo Op - Get a Tree for a Toonie, Help Protect The Bruce

    Presented by Ontario Power Generation

TORONTO, Oct. 13 /CNW/ - Gardeners, get your shovels ready. On October 17th, you can get a tree for a toonie and do your part to protect Ontario's treasure, the Bruce Trail. Ontario Power Generation will match the number of trees distributed on October 17th at a future tree planting on a Bruce Trail property - thereby turning your toonie into two trees.

    WHEN: Saturday, October 17th, 2009 10am to 3pm - Rain or shine.

    WHAT: Trees for Toonies presented by Ontario Power Generation

          -  Visit Sheridan Nurseries and follow the Trees for Toonies signs.
          -  Drop a toonie in the bucket and Bruce Trail Conservancy
             volunteers will help you select a tree for your garden (not just
             a sapling - approximately 75 cm high).
          -  For every tree brought for a toonie, OPG will match it for a
             future tree planting on a Bruce Trail property.
          -  $2 = 2 trees - good for you, good for the environment.
