A young grove grows along Bowker Creek in Oak Bay thanks to a partnership between the district and Schneider Electric and Tree Canada.

Maple and aspen grow thanks to the company’s annual employee community engagement, planting trees along the waterway. Schneider Electric has partnered with Tree Canada, whose mandate is to plant two billion trees over 10 years. Up to $3.2 billion will be invested in tree planting efforts across Canada and the October 26 planting event supports this goal. A total of 22 Schneider employees participated in planting the trees and learning about the history and environmental benefits of Bowker Creek.
