June 3rd-5th: Training in Tree Mapping

Ever wanted to know more about different types of trees? Want to learn how to tell whether a tree is healthy or not? What about learning how to map trees?  If you answered yes to any of these, this is the event for you!

Liana Vines

Dr. Andy Kenney and Forester Astrid Nielsen will be leading a workshop on how to identify trees, assess tree health, and map trees in Champlain Park. Not only will you learn all about the vast number of trees surrounding the area, but also the economics of trees in terms of energy conversation, storm water filtered, air quality filtration and carbon dioxide removal.

Interested? You should be! This workshop is sponsored by the Champlain Park Community Association and neighbourhood groups. In attending, you will be helping develop the forest ever tree inventory for Champlain Park! All are welcomed, no experience required. The workshop sessions are as followed:

Friday, June 3rd 7:00pm-8:30pm: introduction and overview

Saturday, June 4th 8:00am-4:00pm: field practice and hands-on learning

Sunday June 5th 9:00am-3:00pm: field practice and hands-on learning

Please note you must be able to make it for at least 80% off the full workshop. The meeting  location is at Champlain Park Fieldhouse in Westboro (Cowley and Clearview).
