Learn about trees and the role Municipal Arborists play in maintaining the City of Hamilton’s Urban Forest for Free.
School presentations are designed to match the Grade 3 curriculum and therefore are only offered to Grade 3 classes.
Register your class of up to 30 students. A trained Arborists will come to your school to talk about:
- What is an Arborist
- Parts of a tree
- How to take care of trees
- Why trees are important
- Street Tree Planting Program
This free presentation is interactive and engages the students with the use of visual material and educational handouts. The City of Hamilton will also donate a tree to your school. Forestry staff will work with your school to determine the type of tree and where to plant it.
Presentations are booked on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month, with one morning session (9:00 am) and one afternoon session (12:30 pm). The presentation will last between 1 to 1.5 hours.
