Tree planting with Nikibii Dawadinna Giigwag Indigenous youth program

The community is invited to join Nikibii Dawadinna Giigwag (Anishinaabemowin for “flooded valley healing”), a program for Indigenous youth offering employment, mentorship, and pathways to postsecondary education at the University of Toronto Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design. The program provides hands-on ecological learning opportunities to address a growing intergenerational gap in traditional environmental knowledge.

We will be hosting two planting times

Session 1: 10:30 AM - Noon (arrival 10:15 AM)

Session 2: Noon - 1:30 PM (arrival 11:45 AM)

Please only choose one time slot for your participation. Please arrive on time in order to view the planting demonstration.

Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Pets are not permitted at this program. Service animals are always welcome.

Please note that this session will be held only in English.
