For the next few weeks, Ben B., a Woodlynde School senior will be interning at McKaig. He will be learning about invasive plants and animals, planting trees and performing park maintenance.

Please say a welcoming hello when you see him along the trails.

Now would be a good time for you to "Sponsor a Tree" and have him plant it for you. Click on the "Donations" tab above and choose the 4th one down the list.

"Be a Climate Activist - Sponsor a Tree - Your $25 sponsorship will purchase a tree/shrub/native plant, cedar stake, grow tube/cage and root dip.

Volunteers will plant your tree and protect it with a grow tube or cage. This is a great way to help our planet. Do your part, sponsor 1 new tree per year per person.

Our goal is to plant 200 new plants this year.
