Friends of Chilligo – Tree Planting Celebration – May 2nd

Saturday May 2 - 10 AM till Noon

Please join us for a celebratory spring time tree planting at the Chilligo Conservation Area.

The Grand River Conservation Authority’s recent purchase of 47 acres of land, increasing the size of the Chilligo Conservation Area to 121 acres, is certainly cause for celebration — and now as icing on the cake the GRCA’s forestry department has committed to a planting of 100 trees on the new land!

White spruce, white ash and sugar maple will be planted along the fence line to symbolically help revitalize this important greenspace. Our friends from Cambridge Stewardship will also join us with their resources and at least 50 trees and shrubs.

We need as many volunteers as possible to show up for a bit of fun and highly rewarding light work. Your support is important and will be much appreciated.

See map below for directions. Please consider walking, cycling or car pooling to the gathering. Bring appropriate clothing for the weather, boots and a shovel if you have one. Also, feel free to bring any indigenous plants that you would like to plant.

Thank you and we’ll see you soon!
