In-person: Service Project - Don’t Mess with the Don

The event:

Join us for an enriching day of environmental stewardship. Our "Service Project with Don’t Mess with the Don" event offers PMI members a unique opportunity to directly contribute to the local ecosystem through tree planting and invasive species removal.

This hands-on experience, led by expert stewards, will take place at our stewardship site where we will plant trees native to the area, sourced from local and often Indigenous suppliers.

Together, we can make a significant impact on our environment while enjoying a day of camaraderie and giving back. Register now to be a part of this inspiring event!
