Bridge-to-Bridge Group: Planting & Maintenance Weekend

The volunteers of the Bridge to Bridge community reforestation project will be planting a limited number of trees and doing clean up maintenance this weekend on Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 9 am. We will meet along Canal Woods Terrace at the bottom of Aylmer Avenue.  We have a small number of trees to plant, and maintenance – pruning and cleaning up around the base of the trees – on many of our grown trees.  So please bring shovels, pruning shears, and pruning saws if you have them.  Gardening gloves are also a good idea. Feel free to bring your kids to help out and learn about trees.
