Environment Seminar Series: Building Conservation Networks: How Ancient Trees Support the Future of Our Cities with Lesia Mokrycke

When and Where

Wednesday, November 22, 2023 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm


Lesia Mokrycke is the founder of Tropos, a design-driven, multidisciplinary studio in Hamilton where she has established the Urban Forest Lab.


Building Conservation Networks is an environmental art and creative engagement project that uses art to generate innovative approaches to enhance the urban forest. Produced with funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, the project combines art and science to raise awareness about old-growth trees in cities, while laying the groundwork for a new type of urban restoration. As part of her talk, Lesia will provide an overview of her research, and discuss how the heritage tree inventory she is building contributes to wider issues of urban design, ecology, and climate in her practice.
