Join us for a free talk as Jen Baker, long time Hamilton Naturalist, ecologist and land trust coordinator talks about how HNC is working to protect nature in Hamilton through its Pollinator Paradise and Trees Please programs. The Pollinator Paradise program is working to create a Pollinator Corridor across the city on public and private lands. It works with neighbourhood groups to create pollinator habitats. The Trees Please program is conducting tree inventories and is collecting air quality data in two neighbourhoods. The analysis of the data will help prioritize areas for tree planting to help improve air quality. The talk will describe the success of the programs and the resulting habitat benefits, along with the numerous residents and volunteers that have been engaged.
