Essex – The Chrysler Canada Greenway in Harrow now has 300 more trees to provide shade and improve habitat, thanks to a generous gift from ADM’s corporate social investment program, ADM Cares. Employees, friends and volunteers from ADM, a global leader in agricultural origination and nutrition, braved the chilly temperatures to plant these new hardwood trees on Saturday, November 4.
“We’re so grateful to ADM Cares for its leadership in enhancing the environmental sustainability of our region,” said Claire Wales, President of the Essex Region Conservation Foundation. “We all know that trees have been identified as the biggest weapon in the fight against climate change, and we could not be more grateful for ADM’s partnership.”
The Chrysler Canada Greenway is a 50 kilometre trail that connects Tecumseh, LaSalle, Harrow, Kingsville and Leamington. It is the backbone of the region’s Greenway trail system, and is used extensively by thousands of residents and visitors annually for recreation, physical and mental well-being, and as a safe, off-road active transportation route.
