Hello TD Tree Day Vollunteers,
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:
There is limited street parking around Victory Park, please carpool where possible. Also, please observe any street signs rules. The park is accessible from many of the streets surrounding the park but I would encourage volunteers to park along Redbank Crescent or Victory Park Crescent. Site Planting Area & Check In: will be on the Victory Cres side of the park. https://www.google.com/maps/place/43%C2%B042'31.9%22N+79%C2%B038'41.2%22Wfirstname.lastname@example.org,-79.6455432,17.75z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d43.7088696!4d-79.6447719
Ticks are a concern at the site. Appropriate clothing such as long-sleeved shirts and pants with tucked into socks is recommended. Light coloured clothing makes ticks easier to spot and wearing insect repellant with deet is also reccomended.
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.
This 3-minute video is also a good intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sU8wLgXZ92M
What should I bring?
Thank you once again for volunteering.
We look forward to meeting you at the event!
