Education and community outreach

McGill remains deeply committed to the creation of opportunities for the McGill community and the city at large to develop a knowledge and appreciation of campus trees. Two years ago, for instance, the Redpath Museum’s science education program began offering a campus tree tour. The museum also offers a workshop on campus trees to school-age children through its Sunday program.

In addition to our online tree tour, nameplates will soon be mounted on approximately 70 trees so that visitors can easily identify them. A brochure with a self-guided tour will be launched at the same time, allowing visitors to broaden their knowledge—all in the space of a lunch hour! These various initiatives underline McGill’s commitment to commemorating the rich heritage of our trees and to ensuring that they enjoy a healthy future.

From the Roddick Gates all the way up to the top of Mount Royal, our goal is that current and future generations be able to appreciate the vibrant natural setting that is the heart and symbol of this city.
