Environment | September 26, 2018

On September 29, residents are invited to attend the City’s National Forest Week event at Mississauga Valley Park. The outdoor event will include tree plantings and a live raptor show presented by Wild Ontario. Residents will have the opportunity to learn valuable information on how to preserve and protect the city’s urban forest.

Mississauga’s urban forest is important to the city’s environmental, social and economic well-being. The city’s 2.1 million trees help filter pollution, increase shade, provide natural habitat for wildlife, encourage active living and reduce exposure to certain environmental risks.
