TreeKeepers Update #1

Posted on Updated on

In preparation for the TreeKeepers invasive pull at Perkins Passage on June 11, Christen went out to scope out removal and planting sites. If you’ve never been to Perkins Passage and you’re in the Trafalgar and Cornwall Rd area you should stop by and check it out. It’s a small patch of urban forest that is home to a variety of critters such as small mammals and birds including chipmunks, rabbits, red-tailed hawk(s), warbler(s), and woodpeckers.

Here are some photos taken this past week:

TreeKeepers will officially launch on June 5th at Pelee Woods from 1pm-3pm. Refreshments will be provided! We hope to see you there.
