Whitehorse – On Thursday, August 26th, residents are invited to Whitehorse City Hall to take home a piece of history.

Members of the Parks department will be on hand to distribute a limited number of seedlings from the Martha Black Mayday tree.

The event will take place from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at City Hall, on Steele Street.

Residents are invited to come down to collect a seedling and a leaflet that contains the history of the tree, along with planting tips.

The City is proud to honour the history of this 70-year-old tree by harvesting its seedlings to share with the community, and to carry on its legacy.
