Big Lakes County is pleased to invite you to a September 15th 2017 event that begins at 1 p.m. This event celebrates funding approval through the Tree Canada Tree to Our Nature program. This funding went towards re-vitalizing the administrative office yard with diverse, native, species under the Big Lakes County Caring for our Environment; Caring for Canada project. We’ve planted various types of mature trees with help through Tree Canada funding. The reason behind adding different species is to help these native trees thrive. Many of the pre-existing MayDay trees in front of the administrative officer were impacted by Black Knot disease, we plan on ensuring diversity to avoid future extensive tree removal.
