In Canadian cities like ours, it can be easy to overlook the nature in our own backyards. Join us for an evening of conversation and insight from scientists, artists and thought leaders, to learn why rediscovering nature in our cities can change the quality of our urban lives and the future of biodiversity conservation across Canada.
