Canadian City Park Report

Small is Mighty: How small urban ecology projects are having big impacts and how you can contribute

Hosted: décembre 8, 2020

While large natural areas are critical, research shows that small-scale urban biodiversity projects—like pollinator gardens—are critical to healthy city ecosystems. In urban environments, every nook and cranny counts.

In this webinar, hear from experts and advocates on the ecological benefits of these small urban habitats, explore the policies and practices that support (or don’t) this shift and learn how you can start your own tiny habitat – right in your backyard or local park!

The panellists:

  • Nina-Marie Lister, Graduate Program Director of the School of Urban Planning, and the Ecological Design Lab Director,
  • Caroline Magar-Bisson – former Park People Development Lead for Montreal
  • Mahnaz Ghalib, Friends of Dallington Park,
  • Carmen Rosen, Artistic Director, Still Moon Arts Society.

Moderator: Kelsey Carriere, Park People Senior Project Manager.
