Trees In My Neighbourhood | Guided Tour of Doon Pioneer Park Neighbourhood
Have you ever wondered about the trees in your neighbourhood? Trees increase community wellbeing and help us tackle the effects of climate change. With a little care, our urban forest will be around for generations to enjoy. Take a walk in your Kitchener neighbourhood with forestry staff to learn about:
- Tree canopy cover in your neighourhood

There will be space for a maximum of 15 participants to join us on this scenic, interactive workshop.
The workshop will take place 100% outside. Please keep 2 metres apart from anyone who is outside of your social circle. Participants will be screened as they arrive and may be turned away if they are deemed to be at a higher risk of exposure to COVID-19.

Speaker: David Schmitt, Environmental & Urban Forestry Project Manager, City of Kitchener
David Schmitt’s passion for trees comes, in part, from exploring and growing up beside Breithaupt Park one of Kitchener’s oldest woodlots. His passion for trees and the larger urban forest is complemented by a broad educational background in arboriculture, urban forestry and planning along with ongoing field experience where he continues to touch and learn about trees.
