Help protect your favourite trees along the Red

  • Print

Know of a lovely tree along the Red River? You could help protect it.

The Rivers West Red River Corridor (RWRRC) is seeking trees near the river that are either "the biggest, the oldest, the most striking, or a community favourite."

Those looking to nominate a tree must tag the tree with a string, and then submit a photo, the GPS co-ordinates, and the nomination form found here.

It can also be obtained by emailing the Manitoba Forestry Association at info@thinktrees.org

RWRRC executive director Julie Turenne-Maynard noted this year is the first time the contest is being held since the province of Manitoba was the first province in Canada to create a heritage tree program.

She hopes the contest will inspire people all over the city.

"It’s really good to do as an individual or as a family," she said.  

The contest launched on June 1 and will wrap on Sept. 2. Winners will be announced during National Forest Week (Sept. 22 to 28).
