Noise and Firearm Discharge By-law Updates

Share your thoughts on the proposed updates!

The Town of East Gwillimbury is undergoing a review of its Noise and Firearm Discharge By-laws.

Residents are encouraged to continue using burlap to wrap trees for the next few weeks. LDD’s have started to pupate, meaning that feeding has slowed/ will soon stop completely. Caterpillars will begin to form a brown cocoon on leaves or bark, using their hairs as protection. Visit our LDD: Protect Your Trees page for more information.
