On Sept. 29, Mississauga residents are invited to attend the city’s National Forest Week event. The outdoor event will include tree plantings and a live raptor show presented by Wild Ontario. It’s your chance 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. More than two million trees help filter pollution, increase shade, provide natural habitat for wildlife, encourage active living and reduce exposure to certain environmental risks.

National Forest Week in Mississauga takes place Sept. 29 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (rain or shine) at Missisauga Valley Park, Picnic Shelter C, 1275 Missisauga Valley Blvd.
