Kaila is a planting program assistant at LEAF. She is passionate about urban forest management, and loves working at LEAF! So we sat down to ask Kaila how she came to be an Urban Forest Champion.
Last weekend, I signed up for The Regional Municipality of York's Bugs of the Night walk. With fireflies lighting our path and truly unbelievable insects flying alongside us, the Bender and Graves Tract turned into an enchanted forest once the sun went down.
This year has been a scorcher! With summer temperatures in Ontario rising to 30°C and feeling even hotter, we could all use the relief that shade provides.
Under threat of rain and thunderstorms, the LEAF Team got creative and pulled off our garden party, an annual celebration of those who have contributed their time and energy towards enhancing our urban forest! We had to make a few modifications due to the weather, which reminded us of how much we’ve learned about outdoor party planning these past few years.
