Lost loved ones remembered with memorial trees
The Muskoka Conservancy is running a special ceremony to remember lost loved ones by planting trees.
The trees and memorial plaques were purchased through the conservancy and will be set up in Dyer Nature Reserve.
Clare Danes with the conservancy says the tradition started with Clifton Dyer in the early 1900’s who built a stone memorial for his lost love Betsy.
You can no longer purchase trees to be planted this year, however you can get a memorial tree for next year’s celebration.
The ceremony will take place at the Dyer Memorial Nature Reserve on September 19th at 10 a.m.
