Did you know that being in nature provides a calming sensation, lowers heart rate, respiration rate, and stress?
Great, but how do you tell which tree is which? There’s a science to it! Dr. Janani Sivarajah will be teaching us the science of classifying trees. We will split into groups and go through the steps scientists follow to identify trees.
Preparation: Take some pictures of trees in your neighbourhood and bring them to the session so we can identify them together.
Expert: Dr. Janani Sivarajah is an urban forest ecology and plant biology researcher! She is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Environmental Sustainability Research Centre, Brock University and Vineland Research and Innovation Centre, lectures at the Department of Forestry, University of Toronto, and is a Research Associate at the Department of Architectural Science, Ryerson University.
