Do you love the trees of Beaverbrook and have an interest in their well-being?
Consider volunteering with NeighbourWoods© in Beaverbrook,
a community forest stewardship project.

Join the 'NeighbourWoods in Beaverbrook' tree inventory training session on Saturday June 9 and Sunday June 10, organized by the KBCA. Developed by University of Toronto Forestry professors, the training is for anyone interested in Beaverbrook’s valuable natural resource: our trees. You will learn how to identify tree species and to assess tree health and condition. After the course, you will be placed on teams to inventory trees on Beaverbrook streets. Data from the inventory will be used to assess the health of existing trees and to support decisions about future needs. High school students are welcome.

Hearts and Hands

A representative from the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association (KBCA) will be visiting your home in 2018 as part of a public relations pilot program to connect Beaverbrook community members with their KBCA and enhance the flow of two-way communication opportunities. The door-to-door visits will begin with Penfield Drive in early 2018.

The visit will take approximately 10 minutes of your time:

  • To collect the full name of one communication point person per home.
  • To collect an email address per home.
  • To collect a phone number per home.
  • To collect pertinent market research information related to potential volunteers and suggestions.
  • To develop a database for the information collected.
  • To invite residents to join the KBCA Facebook page.
  •  To provide residents with a contact person for the KBCA Public Relations program.

We will keep you updated throughout 2018 about the initiative through our online channels. You can help us and complete the survey online here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2P7Y9CL.

Communities united are communities who flourish! See you in 2018.
