2021 Trunks and Branches @ Building 72, Arboretum

WHEN: Sunday, Aug 15, 2021, at 10:00 a.m.

Please note: Our registration policy has changed. Registration is for one individual only. Each attendee must be registered separately. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Reminder: Given the challenges of Covid-19, all attendees must wear a mask and maintain physical distances with other attendees, except members of the same household.

WHERE: Meet at Building 72 in the Arboretum at the Central Experimental Farm, east of the Prince of Wales roundabout.

WHAT:  Most tree identification guides are based on leaf and twig characteristics, as they are the most reliable way to figure out what’s what. But trunks and branches are also helpful in identifying and understanding trees. They have a lot to tell us about what’s going on inside the tree, how the tree is growing and how it has evolved to fit into nature. We’ll take a walk in the Arboretum and get familiar with some of its typical characters.

Attendance is limited to 40 to enable physical distancing and to avoid fines by complying with government regulations on group size.

Tour leader: Eric Jones

Although the tours are free and open to the public, you must register in advance to attend.

COST: Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted during the tour.

INFO: Register here. The Friends of the Farm office is closed, and voicemail messages are monitored on an irregular basis. Email info@friendsofthefarm.ca with questions or any issues with registration.

WHEN: Sunday, Aug 29, 2021, at 10:00 a.m.

Please note: Our registration policy has changed. Registration is for one individual only. Each attendee must be registered separately. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Reminder: Given the challenges of Covid-19, all attendees must wear a mask and maintain physical distances with other attendees, except members of the same household.

WHERE: Meet at Building 72 in the Arboretum at the Central Experimental Farm, east of the Prince of Wales roundabout.

WHAT: Wildlife areas are not plentiful in the city, and although the Arboretum is not exactly “wild,” it is a key refuge in the middle of a busy urban centre. Trees provide room and board for many different kinds of wildlife. We’ll explore what sort of wildlife is using them and how they’re being used. We’ll also talk about how trees in our neighbourhoods make connections to wilder areas.

Attendance is limited to 40 to enable physical distancing and to avoid fines by complying with government regulations on group size.

Tour leader: To be determined
