Wondrous Tree Fellowship is hosting an Earth Day Tree Walk in Port Moody's Rocky Point Park on April 22, 2023.

Taking a walk through Rocky Point Park is always a treat.

On Earth Day (April 22), a Tri-Cities organization is set to take it a step further by providing an educated trek through the popular Port Moody site to learn about how its surrounding horticulture contributes to a healthy urban forest.

Wondrous Tree Fellowship hopes its guided tour on that Saturday afternoon can lead to some reflection on what the environment means to local residents.

Interested participants will be led east from the north side of the park and along the flat paths of the Shoreline Trail before returning to the start.

Along the walk, Wondrous Tree Fellowship's horticulturist James Bobick will present facts and details about Rocky Point Park's native plants and tree species.

He's also set to offer open discussions about "the importance of trees" and their benefits to a urban forest.

When completed, spokesperson Nancy Furness said there will be entertainment and nature-based crafts for kids in attendance.

The Earth Day Tree Walk is free and will take place rain or shine on April 22 from 1 to 3 p.m.
