To celebrate Earth Day, Toronto artist Sylwia Rebelo has released a limited series of woodblock prints to honour and appreciate all of the beauty that Canada has to offer.
Hand carved and printed in Toronto, $10 from each print will be donated to Forests Ontario. Forests Ontario supports reforestation, education and stewardship initiatives and has planted more than 34 million trees across Ontario and beyond.
Canada's national flower. These low-lying flowers grow on forest floors. Bunchberries can produce edible red berries that are a wildlife favourite but can also be used to make jams and jellies.
Probably the most iconic tree for Canadians. There are more than 100 species of Maple tree and ten of them call Canada home. Did you know that a Maple tree needs to be at least 30 years old before you can extract sap for making syrup? Harvesting sap doesn't actually hurt trees, and it takes about 50 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup.
The Canada Goose. Known for their 'honking' and V-flying formation. Seeing geese is a sign of seasons changing. Did you know that Canadian Geese were almost completely wiped out in the early 1900's? Thanks to protection laws, they bounced back and are now thriving. An amazing example of what can be accomplished when we work to protect the Earth.
