Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests
LEAF is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the urban forest. We offer programs that help you plant, care and give.
It was a muggy summer night on August 21st when a group of Young Urban Forest Leaders (YUFLs) taught an eager group of residents from the Pocket neighbourhood in East York how to identify some of their local trees and about the important differences between native, non-native and invasive species.
Our Junior Urban Forest Rangers (JUFR) program is a special summer camp designated to give children the opportunity to appreciate and connect with the urban forest through fun and educational nature-themed activities. Today, we share our favourite activities to get kids moving and learning.
Spring is a great time to plant trees, but did you know that fall is equally as great? The fall season offers unique and ideal weather conditions that help newly-planted trees adjust and thrive in their new environments.
Join us on September 25th and celebrating National Tree Day by greening the community!
