Enterprise SWM Naturalization - May 14, 2016

Project type: 
Park Naturalization
Year: 
2016
Season: 
Spring
Location: 
Northeast

Community members from all over London came to Enterprise SWM with their families and braved the chilly weather to plant 250 native plants in this stormwater management area! This planting will help to decrease flooding by absorbing storm water flows, absorb pollution and provide valuable wildlife habitat and biodiversity.

A giant thank you to everyone that came out to plant with us - including Roberto (pictured below) who planted his first ever tree! This team was very motivated and got a large amount of trees planted despite the weather and lugging trees across the large site. We couldn't have done it without you! We hope to see you all again at future naturalization plantings.  

Last but certainly not least, our Projects Assistant Brad Petovello and tree specialist volunteers Christian Therrien, Jake Martell, Jason Jordan, Marg Szabo and Brydon McGhee were an invaluable resource getting the trees around the site and helping to plant and mulch all of them!

Thank you to TD Friends of the Environment for funding this planting project!
