Important Information for Volunteers

September 13, Lemoine Point Conservation Area

Thank you for registering for this event!

Please note the event will take place rain or sunshine.

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: Please see the event page for information on directions and map.

Safety Considerations: Kingston is now one of the hot spots for deer ticks and as wild parsnip.  Planters need to dress appropriately (please see clothing information below) The planting area will be tilled prior to planting, so hazards will be greatly reduced.

The Government of Canada provides good general information about ticks which you can view on the Government of Canada website, or view the brochure as a PDF.
