✓ Trees for Halton Hills Arboretum – through a successful Healthy Communities Grant application TFHH was able to repurpose a underused piece of land from the Town of Halton Hills and create a native trees and shrubs Arboretum. There are 21 native tree species and many native shrubs to enjoy. The trees and shrubs have plaques identifying their names as well as a QR code to send you to more related information and pictures of the species. The Arboretum grand opening was well attended by residents, community partners, the Mayor and other town officials as well as children from a nearby school. “Woody”, Trees for Halton Hills’ mascot, was debuted as well at the opening and was a great hit! The Arboretum was featured in local newspaper as well on City TV’s Breakfast Television!
