WEYBURN – The City of Weyburn is hosting a tree planting day July 10 starting at 10 a.m. and has open spots for public join.
Tatagwa Tree Day is funded by Sask Lotteries through the Association of Saskatchewan Urban Parks and Conservation Agencies (ASUPCA) and the City of Weyburn. The event takes place in the open land east of Creekside Way, which is the location for future development of the Tatagwa Trail System.
Planting of 150 Black Hills Spruce trees begins after registration at 10 a.m. and holes will be dug prior by the City Parks department. Registration is open on the City website with 50 spots available for individuals or groups up to three people.
Parking is available in the area and attendees are encouraged to bring chairs and water to relax and remain hydrated.
The Tatagwa Parkway is 180 acres of urban conservation park adjacent to the Souris River and meanders through the city. Tatagwa Tree Day promotes the benefits of trees within the community which include environmental, aesthetic, economic and social advantages.
Plans to construct a granular walking path on the east side of the city, south of Hwy 13, will take place later in the year and be in addition to current existing pathways in the parkway.
