WHERE: Meet at Building 72 in the Arboretum at the Central Experimental Farm, east of the Prince of Wales roundabout
- Much time and energy is spent trying to control invasive plants, including some trees introduced to eastern Canada.
- In contrast, populations of a number of “Native” tree species have steadily declined for decades, with long-term conservation an emerging concern.
- What does it mean when we say a tree is indigenous to a particular region? What about non-native, naturalized, and invasive trees?
- We will explore these subjects, and the history of tree planting in the Ottawa area, via an interpretive tour of the magnificent and historical tree collection at the Dominion Arboretum.
- The tour leader is Owen Clarkin
- Although the tours are free and open to the public, please register in advance
COST: Free admission, donations gratefully accepted during the tour
