SNC, RRCA supporting National Nurses Week at Winchester District Memorial Hospital


This year South Nation Conservation (SNC) is once again on path to plant a record number of native trees and shrubs across its 4,441km2 jurisdiction this spring. In support of National Nurses Week, SNC said thank you by donating over 1,200 seedlings to frontline healthcare staff at the Glengarry Memorial Hospital, Winchester District Memorial Hospital, and the Cornwall Community Hospital. Donated White Spruce seedlings were sourced locally from the Ferguson Forest Centre in Kemptville and were purchased by SNC through funds raised from 2021 fundraising campaigns and with support from the Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation.

“We want to show our appreciation and support for the frontline healthcare workers in our communities who have been working tirelessly throughout this Pandemic,” said John Mesman, SNC’s Community Lands and Outreach Lead. “Trees are resilient, like us. And we hope that newly planted trees will inspire others and provide some hope for the future.”
