Calla Cowan, 8, and William Gurney, 7, work together to plant a shrub during Oak Bay Tree Appreciation Day in Uplands Park.

Participants planted Garry Oaks and other native plants, talked to Oak Bay Parks staff, planted their own acorn, learned about tree banding for winter moths and enjoyed an informative nature walk with the Friends of Uplands Park to celebrate the day.
