White Pine Planting Dedication

Wednesday, September 20, 2023
10:00 am - 11:00 am
Lambton Drive. Near the University Tennis Courts

In honour of National Tree Day, Truth and Reconciliation, and Western's Second Annual RiverFest there will be a Tree Planng Dedication ceremony on September 20th.

White Pine, the Great Tree of Peace, will be planted in the enduring spirit of Truth & Reconciliation. 

Meet us near the University tennis Centre.

The planting of this sacred Being honours the traditional teachings of the Haudenosaunee Nations about the critical importance of peace needed for progress. Peace comes through respect and honour when care is afforded to the work of truth and reconciliation. 

This pine will serve as a daily reminder about the importance of living respectfully with each other and with all of Creation. It also marks the commitment of everyone at Western University to do their part in support of healing and rebuilding.

Western is committed to accessibility for persons with disabilities.  Please contact us in advance if you have any particular accommodation requirements.  – Paula Cornelius-Hedgepeth, 519-661-2111 ex. 85731,
