Less than a month to go!!!

August 22, Ajax - Brock Lands

Sep 19 tree planting site gated entrance

Some key reminders for our location! 

This site is a key site for the program each year.  Of the 50,000 trees planted annually approximately 1/50th of them are planted at OUR site.  This planting is an instrumental planting for the environment, affecting not only the air we breathe, but eventually the food we eat, as it is part of a program to restore the salmon spawning in our area. 

We recommend that you arrive a few minutes earlier than the specified time in order to complete registration and receive your TD Tree Days t-shirt. There will be a brief welcome huddle where important information will be shared followed by instructions on how to properly plant the trees/shrubs.  

Parking and Directions:

Parking is onsite - there is a short walk to registration and the planting area.

Directions - same site as last year - Concession 5 (Whitevale) - West of Westney, just east of 16th Sideline. The entrance to the conservation area is gated - there are "No Trespassing - Conservation Lands" on the fence/gate.  Signage for TD Tree Days will be visible.  View of entrance shown in attached image.

Safety Considerations:
Poison Ivy is located on the extended property; it will be well marked if located anywhere near the planting site.

Clothing:

  • Wear closed toed sturdy footwear (rainboots work well); do not wear sandals or flip flops.
  • Dress for the weather; long pants are recommended to avoid scratches from nearby bushes/brush.
  • You can dress in layers with a windbreaker and bring rain gear in case of rainy conditions.
  • Hat, sunglasses and sunscreen are also good items to bring along.
  • Previous volunteers are encouraged to wear their TD Tree Days t-shirt from last year.

Please bring the following items with you:

  • Garden gloves will be provided, please feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
  • A reusable water bottle.
  • If you are bringing minors of which you aren't the parent/guardian, please download and print the Minor Participant Waiver and Photo Release forms for parent/guardian signature. You must provide the signed forms to the TD Site Leader when you arrive at the event.
  • If you are bringing a guest who has not registered online, have them prepare and provide the paperwork.

Please note the event will take place rain or sunshine.  We will cancel the planting only if thunderstorms are present for safety.

Thanks again for volunteering and I look forward to meeting you at the event!
