For almost 30 years, the Town of Goderich and Union Gas have partnered to celebrate Earth Day with the youth of the town. Every year there's a tradition of planting two trees at local schools. With an added educational component, youth learn the value of urban trees, why they are important to the urban environment, and they are shown proper tree-planting techniques including how to maintain trees after planting.

"With its generous donation, Union Gas has once again demonstrated its commitment to enhancing our urban environment while providing an educational opportunity for local youth," said Sean Thomas, operations manager, Town of Goderich. "It's a special day for everyone involved. It's great to see the kids so engaged, and it wouldn't be possible without the support of Union Gas."
