The Rotary Club of Belleville has a dream to make our city a little greener and our air a little cleaner. Rotary Loves Trees is an environmental initiative that will help make that dream a reality by working with like-minded individuals like you to plant 50,000 trees within Belleville city limits! This year with the help of a generous donation of $10,000 the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, we are hosting threelarge-scale planting events.These plants will bring together individuals with an interest in land reclamation and an interest in keeping Mother Earth and our city TREErific!
The first planting for 2022 is scheduled for Sunday May 1, beginning at 9am at Clarence Bird Park, 34 Hampton Ridge Blvd.  The planting of about 1,000 native species of trees and shrubs will re-establish a natural shoreline along both sides of the creek that runs through the park.  Natural shorelines help in removing contaminants from the creek runoff and protect water quality.
Your Rotary Loves Trees Committee is requesting the help of Rotary volunteers to help plant seedlings  If you have a strong back and don’t mind the end of a shovel,contact  Carmela Ruberto at and we’ll add you to our roster.  Do you have a high school student looking to incur their volunteer hours?  Bring them along!
On behalf of the RLT Committee, thank you for your support.
