The online survey will be open to all. Whatever your relationship to the Arboretum, use the survey to contribute your thoughts to the strategic planning process.
Coming in late September.
In-person focus groups will take place inside the Centre for Urban Ecology and last for 90 minutes. Participants will be treated to complimentary pizza following the discussion.
There are four times to choose from:
All are welcome, but pre-registration is requested.
Can't attend a focus group in person? Sign up to take part in one of two virtual focus groups instead.

During the winter of 2018/19, our Strategic Planning Steering Committee will read through the ideas and responses and come up with our top priorities.

In the spring of 2019, watch for the Humber Arboretum to announce the results of the strategic planning process and begin taking specific actions to meet the defined goals. Watch for new ways to get involved at the Arboretum and to contribute to the priorities that you helped envision.
As an adult, monarch butterflies feed on - and help pollinate - a wide variety of plants, such as aster.
