Planting Day on the Pipeline Trail-- A Pollinator Paradise

We are creating pollinator-friendly gardens along the Pipeline Trail. The focus will be on native plants that provide nectar and pollen. We will remove existing sod, spade or fork the bed, amend with compost if necessary, position the pots according to the planting plan, dig holes, water, plant, water, and mulch. Later additions will include include benches and interpretive signs, as part of the Pipeline Trail Master Plan being undertaken by the City of Hamilton. The gardens are part of the Pollinators Paradise project, an initiative between Environment Hamilton and the Hamilton Naturalists' Club with support from the Edith H Turner Fund of the Hamilton Community Foundation. Bring your own gardening tools if you like. Bring work gloves. Wear a sunhat, sunscreen. No open-toed shoes.

David Suzuki in Hamilton

  • Contact: Bryan Prince Bookseller

In, "Letters To My Grandchildren", his most important book since "The Sacred Balance" and his most personal ever, revered environmentalist David Suzuki draws on his experiences and wisdom gained over his life to pass on to future generations. Now an elder, this series of letters offers grandfatherly advice mixed with reflections from his and Canada’s past, and speaks personally and honestly about the future.

"Letters to My Grandchildren" provides us an intimate look at Suzuki’s life as a father and grandfather, and is full of stories about his own childhood. He challenges his grandchildren— and us—to do everything at full tilt and most of all, to live with courage and conviction.

DAVID SUZUKI is an internationally renowned geneticist, environmentalist, and co-founder of the David Suzuki Foundation. He’s hosted the award-winning CBC program, The Nature of Things, for over thirty years and written more than 40 books, including those for children. He is the recipient of the Right Livelihood Award and has been named a Companion to the Order of Canada. He’s the proud grandfather of six grandchildren.

Tickets $10, available at Bryan Prince Bookseller.
