Bring your binoculars if you have them, we will also have extras that you can borrow at the event.

    Neighbourhood Tree Depot - Gathering on the Green

    Tree Depots are pop-up stations that offer free trees to anyone who is a resident of London. In spring and fall 2018, we hosted 26 Tree Depots in neighbourhoods across London.  We are excited to be offering another busy year of Tree Depots again in 2019.

    It is surprising to learn that 40% of the land in London is controlled by individual residential land owners. ReForest London is working to get more trees onto private residential property and you can help by taking a tree and planting it!

    At these events, we offer a variety of species available for selection, and staff and volunteers are always on hand to assist with your selection. Some of the species include; sugar maple, red maple, tulip tree, fruit trees, white oak etc

    Residents can take 1-3 trees per household, and must provide their address and email at the Tree Depot. Trees are by donation.

    Trees are between 3-7 feet tall and you can find the species list here. Tree selection will vary from depot to depot, on average between 10-15 species will be at each depot.

    Bees and Brews

    Something amazing is buzzing in the Old East! Join us for a celebration of the two new pollinator gardens, supported by the community through the Neighbourhood Decison-making Process!

    This day of celebration will include a Native Gardening workshop from 1-2:30 p.m. led by Becky Ellis to help guide participants in creating a pollinator oasis in their own spaces. Participants will come away with a new sense of wonder about bees, both wild and honey!

    From 2:30 onwards, there will be a native plant give-away so residents of the neighbourhood and city can create their own section of a flourishing and abundant pollinator pathway!

    This project has developed to include the Pollinator Pathways Project, London Environmental Network, London Urban Beekeepers' Collective, the City of London, Ontario - Municipal Government, the Thames Valley District School Board, and the London Brewing Co-operative.

    Stewardship Workshop: Invasive Plants

    Loosestrife2.jpgOn June 8th join TTLT for a workshop all about invasives. The event starts with an introductory presentation on invasive species followed by a field trip to Newport Forest to help monitor and manage invasive plants. We will be focusing on two plants that are present at Newport Forest: Purple Loosestrife and Garlic Mustard. Transportation will be provided to and from the field site.

    Please register below to secure your spot!

    You're welcome to attend the presentation portion only - please let us know if that's the case.

    What to bring

    Come prepared for an outdoor, off-trail experience. TTLT will provide work gloves and all equipment.

    • Proper shoes (eg. hiking shoes, rubber boots) and long pants (no shorts!) are a must. This event will take place rain or shine so come prepared with rain gear, sunscreen etc.
    • The forest will be buggy at that time of year and you may encounter ticks - bring whatever insect repellent you need.
    • Bring your lunch and plenty of water and snacks.
    • Bring your field guides, binoculars, and camera, if you have them. Newport Forest is a beautiful spot for birding and botany.

    Please note there are no washroom facilities at the field site. This will be a rustic experience!
