    The Mariners Museum wind downed tree pictured in Countylive fell directly on top of the indigenous White Pine that the Museum’s volunteer committee planted in 2017 to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday, and as a memorial to Stan Russell, a former volunteer committee chair. With the help and concern of the County (Jennifer Lyons) and the debris removal crew, the fallen poplar tree was removed without further damage to the young memorial White Pine. Thanks to all.
