Tree/Urban Canopy Subgroup

The subgroup’s main purpose is to be a catalyst for actions that will increase a healthy urban canopy in our neighbourhood and beyond, to mitigate local impacts of climate change and contribute to a healthy environment. We are still working out all the details of how we are going to organize ourselves, but one project idea is to have a column in OSCAR dedicated to issues related to our local trees and forest canopy. Some things we may cover are raising awareness around what residents can do to keep their trees healthy, keeping the community informed about what we are planning and have achieved, and promoting the subgroup’s activities and actions that residents are invited to participate in.
