  4. Bring your own water in a refillable water bottle.
  5. Continental Breakfast including coffee and juice will be available upon arriva.

  7. This is a pet free event. We ask that you please do not bring your pets with you. This is to ensure the comfort and safety of all our participants.
  8. Washroom will be available on site.
  9. Keep in mind that we are all getting together to help promote the regeneration of wildlife habitat and re-naturalize the environment and should try and reduce our impact on the natural environment. Please be cautious as you walk through the site to avoid stepping on existing vegetation and tree seedlings from previous plantings and kindly avoid bringing any items to the event that may end up going to the landfill as garbage.

We look forward to your participation on Sunday, September 9, 2018.
