Caring for Urban Forests: Why Trees Matter

May 7 2021

The trees in your neighbourhood offer a lot more than shade.

There are many health, safety, economic and climate benefits to preserving Canada’s urban forests. They are valuable natural assets and a much-loved feature of the urban landscape.

Trees Please Winnipeg joined us for an inspiring webinar aimed to change the way we think about trees. They shared about the real, tangible financial impact trees have on neighbourhoods, the threats our trees now face and what you can do to protect and expand our canopy.

About the Organization

Trees Please Winnipeg is a community tree advocacy organization that works to call attention to the urban forest crisis and the need for sustainable investment strategies for urban forests.

They lobby all levels of government to make long-term sustainable infrastructure investment available to cities like Winnipeg for the maintenance, diversification and expansion of urban forests.

Lunch and Learns

Nature has been here for us during the pandemic.

CPAWS Manitoba wants to maintain this positive connection to nature by providing a space for Manitobans to connect online from the safety of our homes and be inspired by nature in our backyards and beyond.

Join CPAWS Manitoba for weekly lunch and learn presentations from experts across the province who will share their knowledge and passion and bring new nature-inspired activities into our lives.

This program is possible thanks to the generous support of The Winnipeg Foundation and the Conservation Trust, a Manitoba Climate and Green Plan Initiative delivered by the Manitoba Habitat Heritage Corporation.

Help Keep Manitoba Wild


CPAWS Manitoba has helped establish 23 parks and protected areas thanks to people like you.

With your help, we can protect half our lands and waters for future generations of people and wildlife.
