Living Memorial

In 2013, a group of Boy Scouts and adults planted 102 trees in Sarnia’s Heritage Park, adjacent Highway 40. Laid out in the shape of a cross, the maples form a living memorial to the 102 Sarnia soldiers and airmen killed during the First World War. Commercial drone pilot David Cooke recorded this image for The Journal on Oct. 20, shortly after their leaves turned red. For more on the city’s military contributions, please see our special Sarnia Remembers 2019 edition being delivered to local homes this week.
