I have attended field trips at Colonel Samuel Smith Park for Grade 4 students organized by Humber Arboretum in 2012 and 2013.
I am very highly impressed with, and inspired by, the work that Humber Arboretum is doing.
The field trips, in my experience, provide a tremendously valuable form of outdoor education for elementary school students.

Firstly please allow me to appologize to those who have received this copy of the newsletter previously. There was a glitch in the contacts list that caused a lot of the emails to come back as undeliverable. I believe we have rectified the error and thus able to present you with the June issue of the Humber Arb Report.
It’s the second issue of our Newsletter is here. This release is even more interesting and informative than the first. A highlight of this month’s newsletter is the restorative work the Humber Arboretum in conjunction with the Ministry of Natural Resources, Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, the School of Applied Technology & the Humber Research Office to bring back the Butternut tree population.
Additionally we’ll tell you about some interesting facts that make the Humber Arboretum such a unique place. So sit back and enjoy.
Remember if you have any nature themed photographs that you would like to share, feel free to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org . Any feedback or nature story you may have is also greatly appreciated, who knows next month’s issue may feature you.
Hope you have an enjoyable rest of the week, don’t forget there is no such thing as bad weather only bad clothing.
Thank you for your support and we hope to see you soon, at the place “Where Learning Is Natural “.
