2022 Champlain Park “Help Build a Forest” Leaf Drop
What do you do when “Leaf Peeper” season is over? All those brightly colored leaves are covering your lawn, in your gutters, and in your garden. Bag ‘em up and bring them to the north end of Champlain Park (the de-paved section of Pontiac Ave,) between Cowley Ave. and Carleton Ave. Volunteers will accept your tree leaf donations at this site, open from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the following Sunday mornings: October 16, 23, and 30.
The Champlain Park Environment Committee will put the leaves to good use in our neighbourhood’s newest tree planting sites! Only ‘clean tree leaf litter’ in compostable paper bags will be accepted and bags will be inspected on your arrival at drop-off site. No garden waste or other materials, please. There is a possibility that we can offer a leaf pick-up service on Oct. 23 for those who cannot bring bags to park. More information to be confirmed in reminder posts every Thursday in October.
Happy raking and thank you for all of your support in helping us to rehabilitate our community’s natural green spaces!
