H�o Tewai�ntho Let�s Plant - tree planting event next week


The Kahnaw�:ke Environment Protection Office (KEPO) would like to invite the community to participate in the upcoming tree planting initiative, H�o Tewai�ntho! Let�s Plant!, as part of KEPO�s Climate Change Project.

The event will take place from 8am-12pm from Monday, October 4, to Saturday, October 9, 2021, with a goal of planting 475 indigenous trees and shrubs in several public locations across the community. These areas were identified as �hot spots;� zones with dense concentrations of pavement, buildings, and other surfaces that absorb and retain heat (see image).

Trees and shrubs will not only beautify the community and offer shelter/sustenance to wildlife, but also assist in our fight against climate change by lowering the temperature in these areas and providing cleaner air.

COVID-19 safety precautions will be respected during the event (hand hygiene, physical distancing, and masking). All volunteers must preregister online (

For any questions about the Climate Change Project, please contact Marina Gosselin, Environmental Projects Coordinator for Climate Change, at, or call 450-635-0600.
