The Town of Milton is rolling up its sleeves to foster environmental stewardship within the community. In honor of Earth Day on Monday, the Town, alongside environmental partners Sustainable Milton and Conservation Halton, is set to plant hundreds of trees and shrubs this spring, with more to follow in the fall. Additionally, numerous trees will be planted in streetscapes and parks to enhance the local greenery.
