2018 ANNUAL CHRISTMAS FOREST SEMINAR 
Wednesday, Dec 12th
"Urban Forest; Nice to Have? No: Need to Have"
 
“Urban trees and woodlands provide a wide range of ecosystem services to society, for example, flood risk reduction, air purification, and moderation of urban heat islands.” by Helen J. Davis et al, in
“Business attitudes towards funding ecosystem services provided by urban forests” 

Registration is open until Dec 7th! Hosted in partnership with the Eastern Ontario Model Forest and the Ottawa Valley Section of the Canadian Institute of Forestry, this year’s annual Christmas Forest Seminar will focus on the urban and near-urban forest. Discussions on this subject have traditionally been about around selling the concept that trees are important to have in and around urban centres. However, with changes to our climate, and the increasing awareness about the direct health links between humans and nature, our "want" is transforming more into a "need". We will be hosting a range of speakers from across Ontario who work within our urban and near-urban forests to share their perspectives how they manage this critical resource.  Click here for the poster...
