Tree Planting – Saturday October 29th, 2016

We are excited to be announcing our second tree planting of the year!

Saturday October 29th, from 10-2pm
Join us as we plant 400 native trees along Mountain Brow Blvd.  The planting sites will be on either side of the Mohawk 4 Ice Centre.
Rain or shine.


Here is a more detailed map:



We are so thankful to everyone who came out this year to help us with our Trees Please project!  We could not have done it without our Citizen Foresters and Citizen Scientists.

We are now collecting the data to create reports for the two neighbourhoods, Beasley and Beach Strip and will be presenting them in the coming months.  Stay tuned!


Are you interested in air monitoring?  We can lend you a Particulate Matter (PM) device so you can see what the levels are in your area.  Particulate is a fine dust that more and more scientists, researchers and Ministry of Labour are paying more attention to.  The really fine stuff (Particulate Matter 2.5) gets deep into our lungs and we have a hard time getting it back out.  Our air monitors pick up Particulate Matter 2.5 and the larger stuff (the stuff we can see) Particulate Matter 10.  We can provide a quick one on one training session and lend you a monitor and you can see what the levels of PM are in your ‘hood.  We take the data you collected and added to our map.  For more information, email or call 905-549-0900

Please note: in case of inclement weather, we’ll be giving as much notice as possible if we need to cancel.  Our air monitors and mini Ipads are not happy in rainy weather.  We’ll update this website and email everyone who RSVPs with us.  But feel free to email or call the office to confirm 905-549-0900.

If you can join us once or more, that’s great!
