Woodland Restoration Projects:

Join your neighbours in the rehabilitation of the Champlain Woods.

If you have any of the plants on the list and would like to donate seeds or potted plants, please contact Catherine Shearer (metshag@gmail.com) or Daniel Buckles (dbuckles@sas2.net) or Adrian Bradley (adrian.bradley@sympatico.ca).
