ReForest London Announces $65,000 Grant

ReForest London announced a $65,000 grant at a tree planting event at Briscoe Woods in October. The Coves ESA park is one of ten parks that ReForest London will naturalize as they plant 4,000 trees in 2009-2010 with the funds from Environment Canada's EcoAction Community Funding Program.

The grant will allow ReForest London to create 10 new naturalized areas in parks throughout London. These parks include Past Presidents Park, Briscoe Woods, Berkshire Park, Clara Brenton Woods, Fido Pottersburg Park, Kiwanis Park Central South, Shelborne Park North, River Foks Park East, Ed Blake Park, and Viscount Woods.

ReForest London has already completed projects at 4 of the parks, planting more than 1,600 native trees and shrubs. Over 900 volunteers are expected to help plant the trees, and ReForest London has partnered with several community groups to help recruit community volunteers.
