Explore an Urban Forest

Explore an Urban Forest

It is estimated that roughly 7 billion trees are growing in Canadian cities, and this figure is growing. But what happens when these trees fall?

Don't miss this dedicated, interactive exhibit space exploring why our forests matter, how trees help fight climate change and more. Discover what happens when trees mature in urban settings, and how fallen wood can be artfully repurposed using portable sawmills and made into valuable, long-lasting wood products.

Did you know that responsibly diverting wood waste has a direct effect on climate change?

Sawmill Sid, a local eco-hero, will showcase stunning displays of the process of repurposing fallen trees, and how carbon is captured in the process and thus prevents harmful carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere.
