    Tree Aftercare - August 18

    Tuesday August 18, 6-8 pm - Fairmont Trail, 290 Hale Street

    Keeping the forest in the Forest City takes more than just planting trees alone! Caring for trees during their first few years is essential to the success of a tree planting project. That's why we go back to our planting sites in the summertime to help ensure their survival.

    We are now happy to announce that despite the challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has faced us with, we will be hosting several Aftercare events this summer. That means we need your help!

    From July 22 to August 6, we are holding 10 Tree Aftercare events on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 7-9 pm, plus one Saturday morning from 9-11 am. Instead of our usual drop-in events, we ask that all volunteers register on Eventbrite.

    Aftercare Tasks

    • Weeding
    • Mulching
    • Checking Tree Collars
    • Invasive Species Removal
    • Applying Skoot (deer repellent)
    • Pruning
    • Litter Clean Up

    Safety Precautions

    Please do not sign up if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, have traveled recently, or have had close interaction with someone ill with COVID-19.

    We are asking volunteers to arrive with their own water, snacks, gloves, sunscreen, and bug spray. Masks are not mandatory, but you are encouraged to bring one and welcome to wear it if you'd like. We will be maintaining proper physical distance.

    There is NO drop-in option - you must sign up if you'd like to participate.

    If you have questions or concerns please email Brad, Environmental Program Coordinator, at releaf@reforestlondon.ca.

    Online Event in London, ON, Canada

    How does the Canadian electricity system work? A Q&A with Bullfrog Power

    Join us as we unpack the complexities of the Canadian electricity system, and look ahead to creating a completely renewable energy grid.

    The Canadian energy system is complex. We get a lot of questions about how it works, how it varies between provinces, and how electricity flows throughout Canada. In this webinar, we’ll do our best to answer questions we’ve seen over the years and to share important facts about the energy system.

    Since Bullfrog Power launched 15 years ago, the electricity landscape has transitioned in Canada. We’re moving towards an emissions-free grid, but there is still much work to be done. Join Bullfrog’s President, Sean Drygas, as he gives an overview of the Canadian electricity system. He'll discuss the following topics, and much more:

    • Which resources does Canada use to generate electricity, and how does that mix differ from province to province?
    • Where does Canada stack up when it comes to generating electricity from renewable sources?
    • How does electricity travel through the grid?

    We want to give you the chance to ask any questions you have about electricity in Canada, so we’ll be opening up the floor to questions for the second half of the webinar. If you have any questions you’d like to send in advance, please email them to businessevents@bullfrogpower.com.

    Eco Folk 2020 – Artist Bios

    Dayna Manning
    Singer/Songwriter – Producer – Author – Mentor
    Juno nominated artist Dayna Manning exemplifies the very best that Canadian Folk music can be. Her cool clear voice along with her insightful songs represents a history of Canadian musical art that goes back to the early ‘60s and sounds just as vital today. A modern renaissance artist, Dayna recently produced Trent Severn’s third album “Portage”, designed the Stratford Festival’s best selling 60th anniversary t-shirt, and just produced her latest album “Morning Light” with the help of Stratford Festival alumnus Ben Bolt-Martin arranging for chamber orchestra. She recently penned her first book “Many Moons: Songwriter’s Memoir” which was released by Blue Moon Publishers in October 2019. In 2016 Dayna founded the “Folk Army”, a private music instruction academy in Stratford, Ontario. The Folk Army’s mission is to empower young girls to make a positive change in their communities through creativity, thoughtful performance and positive self-esteem.


    Marty Kolls
    Marty Kolls is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter based in London, Ontario. Crossing genres for over 25 years, Kolls has found her greatest inspiration from other female artists. Her newest video release, Play Too, pushes the message of individuality to the next generation. As an educator, mother-of-two and champion of the “female forward” movement, Kolls’ vocals capture the audience with intense raw lyrics and her powerful piano playing.


    Brent Jones
    Singer/pianist/composer Brent Jones is a busy musical collaborator in his home region of South-Western Ontario contributing to the work of many artists both local and international through sessions, production, and performance. He runs Quiet Earth Studios on a heritage farm, just outside London, Ontario and is co-founder of the Back To The Garden Music and Arts Festival.

    Kevin’s Bacon Train
    Hailing from the Old East Village in London, Ontario, Kevin’s Bacon Train has been defined as “That band who plays the covers” or “Covergrass” by St. Regis Tavern Regular and Kevin’s Bacon Train Superfan Rudbal Kelly. Members Marty Kolls, Mark Schram, Paul Aitken, Jordan Blake, and Andrew Fleet blend fun and musical virtuosity to create a unique performance experience. From The Our Street Festival, to Aeolian Hall, to in front of that alleyway across from the Movie Theatre in Forest, Ontario, Kevin’s Bacon Train have been making people get up and dance with their upbeat bluegrass spin on the hits of the 80’s, 90’s and 20’s.


    Darren Powers
    Singer/songwriter Darren Powers has been honing his skills of songcraft and performance with nearly 20 years of experience throughout his home region of Southern Ontario. His music captures the gritty spirit of classic Americana – grounded in truth and realism - exploring tales of loss and redemption with a raw sensitivity. 2020 marks the debut of Darren’s first album release – False Bravado - recorded at Quiet Earth Studios with the help of noted Canadian musicians and producers. The album will be officially launched Saturday, May 30th, 2020 at Quiet Earth with a special immersive concert experience featuring a live multi-media album performance.
