Help Ontario Nature remove Scots Pine trees on the Cawthra Mulock Nature Reserve and take home a unique, sustainable holiday wreath from the cuttings! Scots Pine is a fast growing, invasive species that outcompetes native forest plants. Historically, Scots pine was introduced as a way to restore previously logged areas. Join us and create your own holiday wreath while helping return this property to its natural state.
We will provide the wreath frame, branches, ribbon, twine and gloves. Feel free to bring along your own items to personalize your wreath! Hot beverages and lunch will be provided.
Scots Pine removal will begin at 9:30am and wreath making will start after lunch, ending at 3pm. Lunch will be served at 12:30pm.
Meeting Location: Please meet at the parking lot at the end of the access road off of Bathurst Street. Continue driving past the house down the access road, the parking lot will be at the end with space to turn around.
To Bring: Please bring a re-fillable water bottle, a mug or travel mug (for hot drinks in the afternoon) and any tools you would like to use to make your wreath (i.e. Pliers). Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather as this event will take place outdoors. Sturdy boots and warm clothing (i.e. jacket, hat, and mittens) are recommended.
