Hyla Park Nature Preserve, Fredericton
DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Moderate, kid-friendly (10+)
We are pleased to host a TD Tree Day event at the Hyla Park Nature Preserve, located in the heart of Fredericton’s northside. With the distinction of being Canada’s First Amphibian Sanctuary, Hyla Park is home to a number of different amphibian species, including the Gray Tree Frog (Hyla versicolor) for whom the nature preserve is named after.
Join us to remove invasive Glossy Buckthorn and to restore the area using native tree species.
