In memory of the late Frances Baird, who dedicated much of her life to the community and to the Swan River Urban Forest Committee, the Swan River Aboretum was renamed the Frances Baird Arboretum. A ceremony to recognize the name change took place on Maple Leaf Day (Sept. 27) where members of the community joined together to plant a tree in her honour.
