Volunteers and staff will plant 30 shrubs: highbush cranberry, haskap, and currants. Lend a hand and learn how to properly plant trees and shrubs in the Restoration Orchard. This is the second planting in our orchard that includes many types of fruit trees, wildflowers, and herbs - using Permaculture techniques and earthworks.  

12pm – 1pm

BBQ!– Eat, socialize and be merry! Bring something to put on the BBQ and we will provide drinks, snacks and condiments.

New trails! Explore the beautiful and diverse Acadian Forest at Whaelghinbran on our new 7 km of hiking trails.
