Spring 2024 News

Spring has officially arrived, and with it, the promise of new beginnings and exciting events at Sturgeon Point!  As we welcome the changing seasons, we also celebrate a significant milestone—the Village of Sturgeon Point’s 125th Anniversary.

The anniversary planning committee is hard at work designing swag and planning commemorative activities and events to mark this special occasion.   As a special kickoff to the celebrations, we invite you to join us in a community tree-planting initiative to protect and replenish our canopy of trees. 

SPA has purchased 125 seedlings for members from Kawartha Conservation for planting this spring. To reserve your seedlings, you must be a current paid member of the Sturgeon Point Association. To join or renew your membership, go to the Membership page on the Sturgeon Point Association website and complete the information. Remember to click the link to your financial institution at the end to pay your membership. Completing the form does not complete the membership application. We must receive your payment.

Once you’ve joined/renewed, complete this form to reserve your seedlings.  The species available include: Red Oak, White Pine, or Bitternut Hickory. The limit is 2 seedlings per family, and supply is limited to 125 seedlings, so reserve your tree today! Any remaining seedlings will be available to non-members for purchase.

Seedling Pick-Up Details:

📅 Dates: Saturday, April 27th, Saturday, May 11th, and Saturday, May 18th

🕙 Time: 10-11 am

📍 Location: Sturgeon Point Park
