From our friends with Big Trees of Kitchissippi:
Sunday October 22nd from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., at 645 Parkview Road.
“Hampton Park Tree Walk –Meet near the wading pool at the parking lot off Parkview Road, which can only be accessed from Kirkwood Avenue, via either Buell St. or Sebring Ave.
Join us for a guided Walk with Tree Enthusiast and Master Tree Identifier Owen Clarkin. What species are the trees in Hampton Park? How old are they? How are they doing? Owen will share his wealth of knowledge about trees, and stories about what makes these particular trees so fascinating and important.
Forest therapy guide Andrea Prazmowski will be on hand to talk about the benefits trees provide, and their value in Ottawa’s urban environment.
For the final part of the session, we’ll have a Q & A session with tree enthusiasts who live in Kitchissippi Ward. Find out how you can get involved in protecting and planting trees — for today and for future generations.
In case of drizzle, we will proceed. In case of heavy rain, please meet at Kitchissippi United Church, 630 Island Park Drive.
At this event, we’ll collect donations to cover costs associated with Owen’s time.”
