Aurora Community Arboretum


My work was somehow rudely interrupted by a mouse. That not so tiny grey furry creature zoomed under the Muskoka chair I was sitting on, and disappeared (nature’s magic). Well, it was really my pouring ‘green‘ thoughts that were interrupted. “What happened to my inside plant? Why did that one tiny fern at the window suddenly …

It is hard to believe that the Aurora Community Arboretum is about two decades old; a beautiful parkland stretch located in the East end of our town.

Since it took …

Spring is finally here in Aurora. Birds are here. Tiny flowers starting to poke their heads to reach out for the sun. Not much of green grass but it will fill in anytime soon. Trees starting to bud. Sun is much warmer. Birding around Aurora is always fun. Keep your eyes open. Birds are everywhere, …

The Aurora Community Arboretum has a full task force behind it – a task force of experienced and hard working volunteers that many of us don’t see. “Knock, knock!” I echoed back in my head – “Who is there?” It was someone at my door I didn’t know. I had a brief conversation with a stranger. …
