Discover the beauty and environmental benefits of Alex Robertson Park! Join LEAF for a guided virtual tree tour of the park, then explore it on your own time and participate in our scavenger hunt!

 

Located on the shores of Pickering’s Hydro Marsh, this waterfront park features open spaces, naturalized areas and a variety of trees, shrubs and local wildlife.

 

Virtual Tree Tour: Monday, June 28th (7:00 PM – 8:30 PM)

This presentation will highlight different species found in the park and teach you how to identify them on your own. Learn about the role of trees and green spaces in combating climate change and walk away with a deeper appreciation for the diversity of trees in our communities.

 

Tour lead: Brenna Anstett, ISA certified arborist and Residential Planting Programs Manager at LEAF.

 

BONUS: Event attendees may be eligible to receive free native shrubs (some conditions apply).

 

Scavenger Hunt: After the Tree Tour

Put your new skills to the test by visiting the park in-person and completing a family-friendly scavenger hunt. Share your scavenger hunt discoveries though our online contest for a chance to win an eco-exploration prize kit!
