Trees provide many important benefits, including cooling our streets in the summer, reducing rainwater runoff and air pollution, improving mental and physical health, and beautifying our city. But Winnipeg’s urban forest faces significant challenges from insects and disease, climate change, urban development, and resource strains.
Dr. Richard Westwood will discuss values, issues, and solutions in maintaining Winnipeg’s magnificent urban forest.
Coordinators: Marian Siemens, Steve Lennon
