Neighbourwoods in Champlain Park – its first meeting

Hello,

Like all of you, I attended a meeting in May hosted by Daniel Buckles and Adrian Bradley of the Urban Forest Green Spaces group.

Several initiatives were discussed that night including a tree inventory project. A number of you (along with some others) went to the Neighbourwoods weekend training session in early June and we have had several subsequent sessions to improve our skills in a group setting.  During these sessions, we started the actual inventory (location, species, size, condition) using the trees in the park.

The next step in “Neighbourwoods in Champlain Park” will be a meeting to organize the expansion of the inventory process.

Tuesday, 28 June @ 7pm

Sorry for the short notice, but this seems best to catch most people before vacations take a lot of you out of town …

This meeting will be for setting up teams for the actual inventory, data input, GPS marking, etc.  We expect to work block by block, in teams of 2-3 (or more).

EVEN IF YOU DID NOT GO TO THE TRAINING SESSION, we could still use your help.  You could work with some of those who were able to take the training, especially when they are do the inventory on your street.  You could serve as a block ambassador and introduce the team to your neighbours.
