Creating Healthy Habitats

Protecting our city's green space and restoring natural areas improves ecosystem biodiversity, benefiting all of us and the local wildlife with which we share our communities. Our Healthy Habitats program is designed to help YOU organize your own stewardship activities or participate in BG's annual tree-planting projects.

2020 marks BurlingtonGreen's 10th anniversary of our Community Clean Up Green Up! In 2019, over 17,500 participants joined the collective clean up effort resulting in cleaner parks, streams, schoolyards and neighbourhoods. And our Green Up event welcomed hundreds more to plant 500 native tree species at Brant Hills Park, helping to grow our urban tree canopy and improving our local biodiversity. This year, YOU are invited to gather family, friends and coworkers to take collective climate action and help make Burlington a cleaner and greener home for all of us.

Check out our Clean Up Green Up page to learn more about this event and how you can get involved and make a difference!

Together, with your help, we are able to make a BIG impact by: 
  • Cleaning litter from parks, streets and open space 
  • Planting native trees to improve the overall tree canopy 
  • Planting shrubs, grasses and wetland plants to stabilize and enhance wildlife
  • Removing invasive species that could otherwise be toxic to a specific environment 
  • Check out some of our Upcoming Opportunities and Events and click the links to register!

litter hotspots: 
  • Fields, wooded areas, or creeks near to plazas or commerical/industrial areas are often litter hotspots.
  • Check any park in the City to see if a clean-up is needed.
  • If you are a general group, we suggest not choosing a schoolyard or an adjoining park to clean up, as those should be reserved for the school itself.
