A fun, interactive workshop that will help participants understand the value of trees, particularly in urban settings by encouraging participants to consider what makes a good urban tree and understand issues such as impact they are having on carbon, local micro-climate and biodiversity.
The workshop will include:
We aim to add thousands of plants to homes, community spaces and schools across Adelaide to revegetate Greater Adelaide and provides a means of sequestering carbon on a large scale; improving the local climate for inhabitants by increasing the shade effects and increasing the biodiversity within the city. What is the value of urban forest? is a pilot program for a larger study currently in planning for groups to learn the value of urban trees and then plant their own sapling to measure annually.
The organisers of What is the Value of Urban Forest? are truly grateful to National Science Week for funding this event, making it free for attendees.
