Adopt-a-Tree parents needed!!
Def-con 5 Friends. Our adopt-a-tree (AAT) program is in serious need of parents for the many, many new trees we have all over the park. The first 3 years in the life of young tree are crucial - much needed attention to watering in order to survive. Also no bikes or anything locked/leaned to them and reducing the amount pet urination is also helpful - seriously ;-) Imagine this, if every person who regularily comes to the park on average 3 times a week and adopts just ONE tree, man, we'd be sitting pretty folks. Super easy to incorporate into your visit to park! It's all set up, just gotta sign up.
Recenty, a little grove has been added to the Japanese Sakura Cherrys at the SE end for example. (The original planting was a donation from the Japanese consultate 4/5 years ago) You could call them our 'celebrity' trees. The donation is part of www.treecanada.ca so, this is very excellent for our park to be on the receiving end.
