The Town of Tecumseh’s Earth Day Celebration will take place on Friday, April 22, 2022, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Windsor Family Credit Union Square at Lakewood Park North.

Following a special tree planting ceremony to commemorate the Town’s 100th Anniversary and the relationship with our Indigenous communities, the Town is inviting residents to take part in an Earth Day celebration where 100 trees will be planted in the naturalization area in Lakewood Park (south). Students from Lakeview Montessori will also be in attendance to help with the planting.

“We are investing in our community and our future on Earth Day by planting trees in one of our signature parks,” said Mayor Gary McNamara. “We are striving to make every day Earth Day in Tecumseh by taking steps like this to make our Town a green and environmentally sustainable place to live, work and play.”

Members from the Parks Department will be on hand to help with the tree planting and to answer questions about the Town’s initiatives to increase natural areas within the parks.

The event is free and weather permitting.
