On Friday, May 10th nine Lafarge employees volunteered with over 100 other volunteers at Abbotsford Arbour Day.
Arbour Day is an annual event that is hosted by the City of Abbotsford at Mill Lake Park. This event is a celebration of trees and the natural environment, in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees. The focus is on environmental stewardship, protecting natural habitat and acting responsibly in our parks and green spaces.
Over thirteen hundred elementary school students and their parents congregated at Mill Lake with over 100 volunteers, including our Lafarge employees, to learn how to plant seedlings, have guided trail tours and participate in other interactive environmental activities.
Special thanks to our employees for volunteering for this event and taking part in our first Lafarge “Volunteers At Work” event.
