Tree Planting – September 17, 18

Come plant trees in the NCC forest, Sept 17-18.

The National Capital Commission and community groups in Champlain Park have struck an agreement to foster a healthy forest between Pontiac Ave and the Parkway. In the spring the NCC removed buckthorn and felled dead trees that were possible hazards along pathways. We will plant trees in these cleared spaces to support the gradual succession of the flora and fauna towards a mature forest.

Come with your shovels near the north entrance to St. Georges’ School, between 9 am and 4 pm Saturday and 9 am and 2 pm on Sunday. Contact Daniel Buckles if you have any questions: 613-807-8048;
