Beamsville Women's Institute chose to have a Hawthorn Crimson Cloud tree planted in the Millennium Forest in 2000 on the grounds of the Vineland Research & Innovation Centre as a project of the Lincoln Horticultural Society and the Rotary Club of Beamsville in cooperation with the University of Guelph. This Carolinian Forest contains over 100 varieties of trees which were purchased by local community groups, families and businesses. There is a meandering path with benches placed along the way so visitors can rest and admire the sights.

The Millennium Forest is also the sight of the Time Capsule which was buried in 2001. Beamsville Women's Institute were asked by then Mayor Ray Konkle to gather the memorabilia from local residents, community groups and businesses to be placed in the time capsule. 2050 will see the unveiling of the contents -- our grandchildren better be there to see what we put in it!!
