Maple Leaf Forever Tree Tour – Saturday, October 26, 2013

From Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon’s newsletter:

The magnificent maple tree which, in 1867, inspired Alexander Muir to write “The Maple Leaf Forever”, fell victim to an epic summer storm in July of this year.

But did you know it will be getting a second life? Find out how the wood will be used to honor the cultural significance of this historic tree.

Explore other trees in the neighbourhood and learn how you can salvage wood from your own trees to make beautiful furniture, bowls, and your own family heirlooms.

Tour Leaders:
Mark Phillips, Toronto Parks, Forestry & Recreation
Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon, Ward 32
Michael Finkelstein, Eco-Woodturner

Registration is required. For more information and registration, visit http://www.yourleaf.org. $5 suggested donation.
