Hyde Park SWMF Planting

Project type: 
Park Naturalization
Year: 
2018
Season: 
Fall

We’ve lost count of how many absolutely perfect planting days we’ve had this season!  Sunday, September 23rd was no exception!  The sun was shining bright and the weather was fantastic.  We were joined by 55 volunteers from the community, Western Circle K, Western Generocksity, Western Med Students, and Western Off-Campus Advisors.  Thank you to everyone for your hard work!  Together we planted over 160 native trees and shrubs along the slopes of this stormwater management pond!  In the years to come, the work completed here today by these volunteers will ensure this pond develops into a beautiful, treed, oasis!

On Friday, October 5th, volunteers from Western’s Rotaract Club joined us as we returned to this site to plant an additional 40 trees and shrubs – bringing the total up to 211 new plants!  Amazing job everyone!  We are looking forward to having members of all of these groups continue to volunteer with us in the future!

 Another huge shout out goes to City staff who tackled some incredible site prep before our plantings!  We cannot express how much your work sincerely improves our planting abilities!
