Tree Monitoring and Citizen Science
Join Essex Region Conservation and the Association for Canadian Educational Resources (ACER) as they collect information from a sample of the Earth Day trees planted on April 22 2018.
Volunteers will gain experience collecting field data from native trees while using proper equipment such as calipers and handheld GPS units.
The event will run from 10am to 2pm. Parking is available at the Sand Point Beach parking lot off Riverside Drive. Volunteers will walk south down the Ganatchio Trail towards Wyandotte Street. The morning meeting spot will be located in the green space across the street by the large stormwater pond.
Volunteers should bring their snacks and re-usable water bottle and wear weather appropriate clothing. Long pants and shirts are recommended with sturdy close-toed footwear. Equipment will be provided, but we suggest bringing your favourite garden gloves and knee pads along! High school students who would like to earn volunteer hours should bring their paperwork along.
