A $6,000 funding grant from the TD Friends of the Environment program helped put 15 trees, 200 shrubs and 500 willow stakes along Pickering’s Duncannon Ravine.

Pickering has been busy with restoration efforts along the ravine since 2019 to help address erosion and tree loss due to invasive species, such as the Emerald Ash Borer and Lymantria Dispar Moth. As a result of these efforts, the area has shown an increased improvement in tree canopy growth.

“Through the meaningful support of the TD Friends of the Environment program, the City was able to further its restoration efforts along Duncannon Ravine,” said Mayor Kevin Ashe. “By collaborating with like-minded organizations and valued members of the community, we are able to enhance and strengthen the natural environment here in Pickering. The City will continue these efforts, and residents are encouraged to visit our website to see how they can get involved.”
