A monthly tree talk meeting and walk inspired by Bronwyn Chester's Island of Trees
Sunday, February 17, 2 pm
This first monthly tree talk features the Jack Pine, a local conifer that Bronwyn wrote about in her Gazette column Island of Trees. The story of the Jack Pine will be presented bilingually by Gregg Staniforth, the Agent Technique en arboriculture et horticulture, Division des parcs et des installations, Côte Des Neiges\Notre Dame de Grâce and will be followed by a brief walk to the courtyard of Stewart Biology building where a young Jack Pine was planted last year.
A letter press limited edition broadside of the Jack Pine article printed on paper donated by Papetrie St-Armand will be available with a minimum $15 contribution to the Bronwyn Chester Tree Fund at McGill. Tree talks, walks and meetings will be held mid month at the Redpath Museum. In collaboration with Société Internationale d'Arboriculture-Quebec inc. (SIAQ).
Everyone welcome. No reservation necessary.
Organized by Annie-Lou Chester-Bronwyn's sister- and McGill Science Outreach. INFO: 514 398-4094.
