Amber Cantell, Director of Programs for ReForest London, will take us out on a limb to learn about the urban forest. With a focus on climate change, Amber will consider what measures need to be employed to ensure our future City remains “liveable”. While in the midst of winter, we will reflect on assisted migration and warm afternoons enjoying the shade from the canopy of London’s trees - a treasure we need to nourish and protect.
Six consecutive Tuesday evenings from January 15th to February 19th, 7:00 to 8:30 pm. in the Central Library’s Wolf Performance Hall, 251 Dundas Street. Seating is limited. People are seated on a first come, first served basis. We suggest early arrival for good seating.
Free admission. Plus, up to two hours free validated parking at Citi Plaza during library hours. Families are welcome!
The mission of Nature in the City is to contribute to the preservation and enjoyment of nature. Let’s do this together by sharing information and stimulating an interest in the natural world around us.
