Public Service Announcement

The Town of Milton strives to be good stewards of the environment year-round, with a number of events occurring in and around Earth Day. We encourage Milton residents to participate in these events (rain or shine) to celebrate Earth Day, give back to our environment, and keep outdoor spaces safe and clean for all to enjoy.

In recognition of Earth Day, Milton is planting several hundred trees and shrubs this spring and later this fall with our environmental partners Sustainable Milton and Conservation Halton, in addition to the hundreds of trees being planted in streetscapes and parks.
