Workshops:

Urban Wood Salvage (FULL)

Neature! Tree ID Walk

Tour the new Fleming College Arboretum and get first-hand tips and tricks on how to identify the trees you see.

Beyond The Bark: Trees And Technology

Want to know what your trees are worth? Learn how trees increase property value, improve mental health, fight climate change and more.

Chainsaws: Sharpen Your Skills

Learn to operate a chainsaw as well as techniques for proper maintenance. At the end of the day you will get to leave with a little piece of Fleming!

Out On A Limb

Come out for a climb! Raise your confidence levels, step outside your comfort zone and explore the many career pathways working with trees.

Please note: there are limited spots available in the workshops. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-served basis.
