Public Planting Day

Tuesday, April 22, 10 a.m. to noon
FREE. No registration required.
The Woodland Walk and Bird Habitat combines a native woodland and prairie garden, and provides a year-round habitat that includes food and shelter for birds, pollinators and other wildlife. The plants chosen are native to the Carolinian Forest in the Toronto region. This evolving garden space has been planted over several years, and Earth Day 2014 is the culmination of that work. The garden has diverse and multiple missions: to be an outdoor classroom for educational purposes, both passively and actively; to promote sustainability, conservation and biodiversity; and to showcase horticulture. A natural wood chip path guides visitors from the busy intersection of Lawrence Avenue and Leslie Street, through the dappled shade of the open woodland, and on to the masses of perennials and the succession of seasonal plants in the Piet Oudolf-designed Entry Garden Walk.

Ice Storm Open House
FREE Advice clinic for property owners to help their trees and Toronto’s urban forest
Tuesday, April 22, 2014, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

The 2013 ice storm devastated Toronto’s tree canopy on both private and public land. Property owners want to know what their responsibilities are and how to maintain or replace their damaged trees as the spring season approaches. As cleanup progresses, questions still remain: What do we know about the extent of the damage? Who’s responsible for the trees in our neighbourhoods? How can residents access reputable professionals to assess the health and safety of private trees?

Come to a free open house and information session to find out why restoring our shared urban forest is crucial to all residents. Learn practical tips and get one-on-one advice directly from knowledgeable tree experts. Bring your questions and we’ll do our best to get you the answers you need.

6:30 to 7:30 p.m.        OPEN HOUSE / ASK THE EXPERTS
7:30 to 8:30 p.m.        PRESENTATIONS (City of Toronto, LEAF, ISA)
