Develop your ID skills and appreciation for trees on one of LEAF’s guided tree tours this summer. Find out what you can do to care for trees as you participate in hands-on tree care and learn about the new Adopt-a-Park-Tree Program through which you can provide ongoing care for a tree in your favourite park.
The events are free but registration is recommended. At the end of each tour you get to take home a free native shrub to help green up Toronto! Make sure you wear comfortable clothes that can get dirty, and don’t forget your water bottle.
