We've asked volunteers to share feedback about their experience. Below are a few of our favourite quotes:
"Overall we had a great experience. I think being in nature with family/friends/co-workers, showing my little girls to promote an environmental community was a great experience."
"It was a Fantastic Day and a Fantastic Group to work with and we all had a lot of fun. It gave a great feeling of accomplishment in Greening the Community."
"It's a great initiative and I loved volunteering and immediately seeing the results. I would definitely do this again."
"Brought my scout group it was great to see the boys having such a good time and really got into."
"Fun to do community work with other friends from our school. Chance to feel like we are making a permanent difference to a park we love - Stanley Park."
"Knowing that I was making a difference in regenerating the local vegetation in the Minesing Wetlands and also seeing all the younger helpers getting outside and having fun in the outdoors. Looking forward to seeing what the trees look like in a few years."
"It was also fun to get together with some colleagues and meet their families. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to know that I'm helping to safeguard the environment that my children and grandchildren inherit."
"It was great getting out and involved in my community, not only were there TD employees planting there were lots of Fort Saskatchewan residents, it made me feel proud that we have such a great community invovlement to help make it a better place for our children to grow up in."
