Join UBC Professor and Associate Dean of Research and Innovation, Dr. Sally Aitken, to learn about how our changing climate will impact local tree species. Dr. Aitken studies local adaptations of forest trees and their ability to adapt to new climates using long term genetic studies. She will share her insights into the effects of climate change on the trees of Stanley Park, such as the extreme conditions observed this summer. Don’t miss the chance to learn about the future of our local forests!

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
