Events will take place across all sections of the ACC on June 15th, 2019.  The ACC Toronto Section will be participating in a tree planting and trail clean up at Kelso Park in Milton.  Kelso has had to remove a number of ash trees over the last few years and note that their forest is looking a bit bare.

Setting an example and spreading the word within the outdoor community
