Help celebrate National Tree Day by coming out for a morning of planting native trees and shrubs at the Humber Arboretum! This event will take place at the newly revitalized Humber Pond on Humber College North campus.

The Humber Pond is located near the intersection of Humber College Blvd and Hwy 27. Follow signs to the event site from Humber College Permit Parking Lot 4, found east of the bus loop. Visitor paid parking is available in the parking garage beside Lot 4.

All equipment and materials are provided and no experience is necessary. Humber Arboretum and City of Toronto staff will provide an introduction, and the City will provide a planting demonstration. Afterwards, volunteers are able to plant at their own pace under the supervision of City staff.
