The Rainy River District Stewardship Council is proud to announce the May 17 launch of the “Fort Frances Tree Map: A Guided Tour of Local Trees.”
The map is a fun, visual representation of some of Fort Frances and its town-owned native trees.
The map will take participants on a leisurely four-km walk through the town, where they can stop and observe mapped and labelled native trees.
While supplies last, budding tree enthusiasts and tree experts alike can pick up copies of the map for free at the Fort Frances Tourist Information Centre, the Fort Frances Public Library and Technology Centre, or the Fort Frances Museum.
The Fort Frances Tree Map also is available in an exciting interactive format online at www.rrds.ca/trees
With the online map, participants can view all trees the Rainy River District Stewardship Council has inventoried, leave comments, and add their own trees to the map.
The software also lists each tree's environmental and economic benefits.
