    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Canada’s 150th birthday will have Niagara Parks Commission gardeners busy this spring.

    Interactive gardens, a revitalized Niagara Glen and 30,000 red and white tulips will greet tourists this summer for the NPC’s commemorative programming for the country’s year-long celebration.

    Backed with $563,000 from the province’s Ontario150 Funding Program, the NPC has undertaken five legacy projects with the theme of Rooted.’

    During a media conference Tuesday, parks commission chairwoman Janice Thomson said the projects “speak to our mission and the ‘roots’ we have established over our rich 132-year history.” They also touch upon NPC’s anniversary campaign theme of Begin Here, “signifying Niagara Parks’ importance as a natural, cultural and heritage gateway.”
