Volunteers at Pickering planting event
This fall, LEAF grew the urban forest in Durham Region by planting over 750 native trees and shrubs on public land. We partnered with the Town of Pickering to complete our first naturalization planting project in Pickering’s Pine Creek. Our Stewardship Assistant, Suzie, reflects on her planting experience.
