National Tree Day Event at Mount Douglas Park: Tinker Town

Date & Time: September 25, 2019 (10:00 am - 11:30 am)

Category: Saanich Community Events (See all events in this category)

Join us at the new outdoor nature area affectionately called Tinker Town. This is in Mount Douglas Park just a bit north of the beach parking area.

Tinker Town sign in Mount Douglas ParkWe will plant 12 Western Red Cedars (5-6 footers) and 5 Big Leaf Maples (10-12 footers) celebrating National Tree Day. We have chosen this site to also officially open a new outdoor nature education area in Mount Douglas Park: Tinker Town.

This site was cleared of underbrush and with logs added for seating to provide a small classroom like setting. We are assisting nature preschool groups as part of our Natural Intelligence initiative to use this site. The goal is to improve youth’s understanding and appreciation for natural areas.

tables and stools made out of fallen treesWe hope you can come watch or even help!  We anticipate more shrub planting will happen in this area over the late Fall/winter.
