14th Avenue Restoration – Phase 3

 

This tree planting restoration event is free to all participants. Please RSVP early for a desired date(s) since space is limited. Accommodation will be based on a first-come, first-serve basis. This year’s project titled ‘Little Rouge Woodland Restoration and Diversification Project – Phase 3’ will re-establish woody native plants (trees & shrubs) in the open space between existing woodland fragments along the riparian corridor of the Little Rouge River. Students will learn the importance of properly planting a tree and why they are important for our urban environment. Activities will include: tree planting, applying mulch, tree guards and replanting trees or shrubs if necessary.

This planting will provide practical outdoor learning in accordance with the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum. This is an opportunity for on-site educational experience including reforestation techniques & soil amendment techniques; as well as wetland, woodland and riparian studies.
