Tree Planting with Gr. 4 students

Alder trees that we handed out to Gr. 3 students in the spring, that they carefully nurtured over the summer, have found new stream-side homes at several locations over the Saanich Peninsula…Reay Creek Park (Sidney), Adam Kerr Park (Saanichton), Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary (Saanich), Whitehead Park (Saanich) and near Hagan Creek (Mt. Newton Valley).   Thank you to all students and families that came out, often in the rain amidst busy Saturday schedules, to plant the trees with us.  Below is a photo of one such impressive crew, at Reay Creek Park in October.  Thanks also to Peninsula Co-op for sponsoring our tree program for the past four years!
