**POSTPONED** Trees In My Neighbourhood | Guided Tour of Mount Hope
POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you at our next event in the future!
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
- Benefits of trees
- Interesting facts about trees
- The challenges of growing trees in urban areas
- How to care for your local trees
There will be space for a maximum of 15 participants to join us on this scenic, interactive workshop. We especially encourage participation from residents of the neighbourhood. This event is a part of a series of walking tours, so please be patient if you live in a different part of the City – we hope to be coming to your neighbourhood soon.
The workshop will take place 100% outside. Upon your arrival, our staff will conduct a COVID-19 screening check. Once passed, you will be checked in. A physical distance of 2 metres must be maintained throughout the duration of the event. All participants are required to wear a mask throughout the event. Please let us know if you have a medical condition or other reason that prevents me from wearing a mask.
Location: Kitchener. Mount Hope neighbourhood. Meet up location to be communicated 48 hours before the event.
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.
