‘Branches and Banks’, a community-based annual tree plant and waterway clean-up event in Cochrane has been ongoing since 1996. An Emerald Award recipient, this event brings community volunteers and families together in a unique way. In this story, Tim Giese shares his enthusiasm for urban riparian stewardship. Listen to find out why, ‘Branches and Banks’ is “so much more though than just going out and planting trees”.
