This past Saturday, Neighbourwoods and the Canadian Tree Fund hosted Tour the Trees; an event that put our town’s natural history in the spotlight. Our 30 cyclists toured around Fergus and Elora to listen to the stories behind nine magnificent trees – and one rock. This tour took us from the Sugar Maples planted in honour of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, to the Kissing Stane in Fergus’ James Square. If you didn’t have a chance to join us, a listing of the trees that we saw will be available soon.
We are very thankful to our speakers Deb Dalziel of Centre Wellington Tourism, Toni Ellis of Neighbourwoods, Ali Morrison of Green Legacy, Al Koop and Gary Bryant of Older Voices, Monique Lee of the Centre Wellington Arborists Association, Greg Boland of the Chestnut Council, John Wilson of the Canadian Tree Fund, Kyle Smith of the Aboyne Museum, as well as Rick Goodfellow who led our pack of cyclists.
We would also like to thank our sponsors: The Township of Centre Wellington and the Rotary Club of Fergus-Elora, as well as donations from Drayton Entertainment, the Elora Festival, Green Legacy, and the Elora Brewing Company, and Wreckless Eric’s Café for providing coffee.
This year Centre Wellington is proud to host Tour the Trees on Saturday, July 14th from 10am-12pm. Our group of riders will be making ten stops throughout Fergus and Elora to learn more about the historic foundation and beauty on which our community thrives.
Registration is $25 per rider and helmets are required.

A special thanks to the Township of Centre Wellington and the Fergus-Elora Rotary Club for sponsoring this event.
