Junction Creek Stewardship Committee is holding a tree planting and children’s art event in the Flour Mill area Oct. 1. 

Meet at Percy Playground (600 Percy St). Parking is available at the Abundant Life Healing Centre (360 Perrault St). 

The tree planting along Junction Creek takes place 1 to 3:30 p.m., and will be done under the guidance of Peter Beckett, a local ecologist and leading expert in Sudbury's re-greening efforts.

Trees and shrubs that are one to three gallons in size will be planted instead of seedlings to generate an immediate positive impact and maximize plant survivorship.

From 2-4 p.m., join artist Sophie Edwards and ECCCo for an art engagement for children titled Exploring Tree Families through Drawing. 

Using drawing as a tool for close observation, children will explore how trees are part of an intergenerational, inter-species family.

This event is supported by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and Early Childhood Creative Collaborations.
