“Women in Trees” Conference and Awareness Day

Saturday, April 22, 2017
10:00 am to 3:30 pm.

Doors open at 9:00 am.
Fleming College, Frost Campus,
200 Albert Street South, Lindsay

This is a FREE event to showcase the variety of roles and opportunities for women in the fields of Urban Forestry, Forestry and Arboriculture.

A panel of female industry representatives will speak about their experiences and pathways to fulfilling careers with trees.

The day will be filled with networking opportunities, story-telling, and will culminate with the “Women in Trees” group climb. How long has it been since you climbed a tree? This will be an amazing opportunity to “climb like a girl!” But you’ll be climbing with a harness and ropes, with expert instruction and supervision. Our goal is to get 100 women in trees!
