Coastal GasLink supports beautification of community in B.C.

Posted by Coastal GasLink

As part of our commitment to leaving an extraordinary legacy, Coastal GasLink joined Tree Canada in planting trees at a dog park in Burns Lake, B.C.

The Burns Lake Dog Park committee was one of 19 successful recipients across Canada selected by Tree Canada to receive a TC Energy sponsored community tree grant.

On June 6, volunteers spent the day in Burns Lake, B.C., helping plant 19 of the 48 trees and shrubs planned for the dog park.

“I was thrilled to hear the news that the Burns Lake Dog Park was chosen as a lucky recipient of Tree Canada’s grant, and I look forward to seeing the dog park transform and grow throughout the summer,” says Tanner Moulton, Public Affairs Coordinator at Coastal GasLink. “The community is excited to see the results and enjoy the park for generations to come.”

This tree planting is the first phase of work for the dog park; the next round will see the remainder of the planned trees and shrubs planted, as well as wheelchair accessible tables added before the public grand opening of the park on August 29, 2020.
