HONOURING OUR MILITARY. COOLING THE ENVIRONMENT. BEAUTIFYING NORTH AMERICA’S MOST TRAVELLED HIGHWAY.
Join us in planting 2 million trees along the 401 Highway of Heroes, a tribute to the men and women who fought for Canada in our wars, and a living memorial to 117,000 who lost their lives for freedom.
At key stops along the highway, way-finding will direct visitors to treed memorial sanctuaries that tell the Highway of Heroes story, honour our military and thank Canadians who contributed to the living tribute. In addition to improving the view, two million trees will sequester tonnes of carbon dioxide, clean particulates from the air and naturally filter our water.
To complete the soil remediation and plantings, the Highway of Heroes Tree Campaign must secure $10 million in pledges from government, individuals, corporations, foundations and those who can donate in-kind goods and services.
