Airdrie secures $50,000 grant funding from 2 Billion Trees Program to plant 10,000 Trees

Airdrie, AB – The City of Airdrie is excited to announce that we have been awarded a $50,000 grant from the 2 Billion Trees (2BT) program to plant 10,000 trees this summer in Sierra Springs along the Nose Creek watershed.

"Airdrie is honoured to receive this grant from the 2 Billion Trees program,” said Mayor Peter Brown. “This funding helps create a greener and healthier environment for our community today and will benefit generations to come.”

“Creating urban forests in our City plays a vital role in capturing and storing carbon, enhancing air and water quality and promoting biodiversity,” said David Jarand. “It will also make a meaningful contribution to combating climate change and preserving our natural heritage."

The 2 Billion Trees program offers financial support to organizations committed to planting trees across Canada.
