Approximately 1,500 native tree and shrub seedlings will be planted on the south side of Old Colony Road, just east of Bond Lake Public School.


Planting will be performed by York Region elementary and high school students, and students from three private schools.


Richmond Hill Garden & Horticultural Society members are invited to participate in the reforestation activities; or to just stop by for lunch, the raptor show, or to observe the planting.


Agenda:

  • 9:00 am to 11:00 am – Planting Leaders’ Training for high school students
  • 11:00 am to 12:30 pm – Elementary students arrive, Lunch, Raptor Show
  • 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm – Planting


2017 marks the ninth year this event takes place. In addition to our society’s financial contribution, major funding for this collaborative effort is provided via a successful application by the Richmond Hill Rotary Club to the Toronto Dominion Bank Friends of the Environment Foundation. Additional collaboration is provided by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, who manages the park, prepares the site and arranges lunch; Richmond Hill’s Urban Forestry section, who provides wood chip mulch for the planting; Urban Forest Associates, who manages the quality of the planting efforts and the safety of the participants; and the Mountsberg Conservation Centre, who puts on a fabulous raptor show.


Together, we can make a difference!
