Help Ontario Nature remove scots pine trees on the Cawthra Mulock Nature Reserve and take home a unique, sustainable holiday wreath from the cuttings!
Scots pine is a fast growing, invasive species that outcompetes native forest plants. Historically, Scots pine was introduced as a way to restore previously logged areas.
Join us and create your own holiday wreath while helping return this property to its natural state.

We will provide the wreath frame, branches, ribbon, twine and gloves. Feel free to bring along your own items to personalize your wreath! Hot beverages and lunch will be provided. Please be sure to indicate any dietary restrictions when you register.
