Operation Green ShieldJasper Reuse-it Centre
The Municipality of Jasper was awarded a $25,000 matching grant from the CN EcoConnexions From the Ground Up – an initiative funded by CN and Tree Canada – to reforest a stretch of land at the east end of town along the rail line. The trees make the site more resistant to invasive species, provide a sound barrier from the noise of the trains and freight yard and beautify the one of the main entrances into the town.
