Green Action Centre is pleased to support a new series of seasonal walks exploring the connection between people, places and Winnipeg’s urban ecosystems.
Please come out on April 27th for the Spring walk in this series: Return of the Floodwaters.
Gathering on the flooded banks of the Red River in downtown Winnipeg, this walk is bringing together local leaders from the worlds of design, ecology and community development to talk about WATER in the city.
The walk will weave together a discussion about geology and watersheds, how water has shaped the land over time, colonization, urbanization and the transformation of water systems in the city, and the impacts on the health of communities and the wider environment.
This walk is free and open to the public, but space is limited to 30 spots. Visit urbanecologywinnipeg.ca to book your ticket!
Meeting location: Fort Douglas Park, Waterfront Drive, Winnipeg. Meet in the little round paved plaza, close to the corner of George Street, on Waterfront Drive.
Confirmed speakers on this walk include: representatives from the Mama Bear Clan; Dr. Adele Perry, Professor of History at the University of Manitoba and author of Aqueduct: Colonialism, Resources and Histories We Remember; Angelina McLeod, film director of Freedom Road and graduate student in the Department of Native Studies at the University of Manitoba; Bill Rannie, Professor of Geography at the University of Winnipeg; Dimple Roy, Director of Water Management at the International Institute for Sustainable Development; Paul Mutch from the City of Winnipeg Naturalist Services; Chris Penner, ecologist and designer at Scatliff+Miller+Murray; and more.
This project is independently organized. We are grateful for the support of the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources, HTFC Planning + Design, and a number of other organizations.
