Tree Discovery Walk in Carlington
White Spruce is a large coniferous evergreen tree, having needles about 1.5 to 2 cm long that are arranged in a spiral pattern around the twigs.
Don’t know your spruces from your pines? Local tree expert Owen Clarkin to the rescue! You’ll discover the many different trees species of Carlington, and learn which are native species, what they need to grow and thrive, and how to protect them.
Using Carlington Park as our living example, the goal of this walk is to share information about the environmental, social, and economic benefits of our urban forest and city parks, and to promote actions and behaviour that will preserve the Park for future generations.
This walk will showcase the surprisingly rich biodiversity present in Carlington Park and the adjacent Clyde Woods. Most of the regional species of trees and shrubs which prefer limestone uplands are present here; this tour will highlight as many of these kinds plants as can conveniently be covered during our available time.
