Lesia is working in partnership with the City of Hamilton to develop an educational resource for local teachers that will help students learn about the urban forest in Hamilton. As part of the Stewardship program established through Lesia's Research and Creation grant with the Canada Council for the Arts, the Learning Guide introduces the program's core concepts about identifying, collecting, and protecting urban trees through a series of creative activities.

The Learning Guide is co-produced with the Department of Tourism and Culture with the City of Hamilton. Coming soon: click on the link below to download a copy for your classroom.

Stay tuned to learn more about "How to Grow a Forest".
