Kingston area residents are being invited to meet up at the Lemoine Point Conservation Area on Saturday, May 6 to help plant trees between 9 am and 11 am.
The annual event is hosted by the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA), Forests Ontario, and the Friends of Lemoine Point. Every year families, civic groups and individuals come out for this “ambitious reforestation initiative which promotes community engagement and environmental awareness“.
In addition to increasing the number of trees in the conservation area, participants also be able to learn about the importance of green spaces within an urban setting.
The CRCA advises participants to wear clothing and footwear suitable for the day’s weather conditions and bring work gloves, a shovel, insect repellent and sunscreen.
The meeting point is at the north parking lot via the Coverdale Drive entrance of the Lemoine Point Conservation area where instructions will be provided.
Located in the west end of Kingston on the shore of Collins Bay, the Lemoine Point Conservation Area has entrances off Front Road and Coverdale Drive and entry is free.
