Kingston – The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority and the Friends of Lemoine Point are encouraging area residents to come out to the Lemoine Point Conservation Area on Saturday, May 5, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., to help plant trees.
This ambitious reforestation initiative promotes community engagement and environmental awareness. Besides increasing the number of trees in the local ecosystem, participants will have a chance to learn about the importance of green spaces within an urban setting.
Folks coming to the event are advised to bring outdoor clothing and footwear appropriate to weather conditions, work gloves, a shovel, insect repellant and sunscreen. Come to the north parking lot (Coverdale Drive entrance) to the Lemoine Point Conservation area for instructions.
Lemoine Point Conservation Area is located in the west end of Kingston on the shore of Collins Bay. There are entrances off Front Road and Coverdale Drive. There is no entrance fee.
