September General Meeting – Greening the City of Richmond Hill
September 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Each year, the Urban Forestry, Natural Environment, and Horticulture team continues to complete many “green” initiatives within the City of Richmond Hill. This presentation will review many of the team’s programs and projects, how they impact the environment, and what residents can do to take part in greening the City. Key programs include the Community Garden Program, Healthy Yards, Long Term Restoration Projects, and the Community Stewardship Program.
Natural Environment Analyst and University of Toronto graduate Khrysta Lyn manages Richmond Hill environmental community programs such as the Community Garden Program, Healthy Yards, Pollinator Initiatives; and provides support for the Richmond Hill Blooms and Celebration Forest programs.
Tonight’s speaker is planning to attend our meeting in person. Should plans change, a live video broadcast of her remote participation will be projected onto a large screen in the auditorium.
All general meetings begin with a welcome and general announcements, which precede the introduction of the guest speaker.
