Guelph residents invited to help plant a future forest

May 7, 2017 by  

Guelph will be marking Canada’s 150th birthday with a celebration that looks towards the country’s next 150 years.

A special event has been planned at the future home of the Guelph Lake Nature Centre. Attendees will help to plant trees that will one day make up part of an 800-tree forest that is being installed on the property. Guests will be greeted with a traditional First Nation’s welcome, and the University of Guelph’s BIOBus will also be on site. Those who come out will also have an opportunity to participate in a guided tour of the facility, and when it is time for a bite to eat, food trucks will be on hand serving up local taste treats.

There is no admission price being charged to attend, though donations to the future Guelph Lake Nature Centre will be greatly appreciated. The organizers of a function like this can use the services of local brochure printers to supply them with an assortment of promotional materials, which can be distributed to members of the public who come out to lend it their support.

All of this will be taking place at the Guelph Lake Conservation Area, which is located at 7743 Conservation Drive. It will run from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm on May 13, and all ages are welcome to come and lend a helping hand while learning more about the area’s natural heritage. Additional details can be found on the Guelph Mercury website.
