Huntington Park Planting - May 6th, 2018

Project type: 
Park Naturalization
Year: 
2018
Season: 
Spring

We had a huge group of 59 volunteers out on Sunday afternoon to help us plant 114 native trees and shrubs!

In addition to this, we planted 17 large shade trees around the playground to increase shade cover and make the area more enjoyable. The volunteers planted all the trees and shrubs in record time, as all the plants were in the ground in under two hours! We were all glad the rain held off until after the event, but the newly planted trees were no doubt grateful for the drink!

We would like to give a special shout out to the wonderful folks at Cornerstone Architecture who came out to volunteer with us this weekend. Cornerstone Architecture has made a multi-year commitment to helping improve the urban forest here in the Forest City as Silver Level Sponsors of London's Million Tree Challenge, and we are so grateful for their support. We also would like to thank the City of London and the Government of Ontario (Healthy Kids Community Challenge) for funding this particular project. This planting would not have been possible without you!
