Environment | September 7, 2022

September 18 to 24 is National Forest Week, a dedicated week where Mississauga residents can celebrate the beauty and diversity of the city’s urban forest and natural areas. During the week, the City is hosting a variety of public events about Mississauga’s natural heritage system and actions residents can take to protect, enhance and expand our woodlands and urban forest.
