Conservation Projects

Help plant 1000 Trees in 2023!

The big trees we enjoy today were planted many years ago by someone like you!

Planting trees is both a legacy project and an act of climate leadership that will benefit Lethbridge for generations to come.

1. Select a tree for your yard or business.

2. Plant that tree in your yard or at your business.

3. Name and register your tree on our website so we can get to 1000!
