Join GreenHere and LEAF (Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests) on December 2nd 2006 for a guided tree tour through Dovercourt Park and the surrounding neighbourhood. The tour will be led by LEAF's certified arborist Todd Irvine and local tree advocate Andrea Dawber of GreenHere. Learn about issues facing the urban forest and the many restoration efforts of GreenHere. We'll also cover some of the colorful local history of the area.
The Tree Tour will begin at 1:00pm in Dovercourt Park, where local citizen efforts have resulted in many new tree plantings. We'll visit some raised bed plantings on Hallam, historical houses along Gladstone and Westmoreland Ave and stop several times for significant trees and locations of interest. We'll come back to Dovercourt Park by 3:00pm
for a community bonfire.
The tour is a fantastic opportunity to learn about tree-related projects in the neighbourhood.
The Tree Tour will be given in English and translated into Portuguese.
Suggested donation $5 per person
