Let's Tree Wilmot
Many organizations in Wilmot Township have joined together in an effort to add more trees to the township. Trees have a multitude of benefits to all living animals and plants. These trees will be put on both Township and private properties. If you would like to donate to this important, environmental cause, please send a cheque to:
