In this webinar: Time to be Determined! Just like Dr. Seuss’ Truffula trees, whitebark pine are what everyone needs. These sturdy trees thrive in places where few other trees can. They stabilize slopes to help other plants grow, slow spring snowmelt to prevent flooding, and provide important food to animals. Like Truffula trees, they are also under attack, not by people but by an introduced fungus called blister rust. Add to this natural predators and habitat changes and whitebark pine now need everyone’s help.  Take a virtual walk in the forest with Parks Canada and learn why these trees are so important, what people are doing to help, and how wildfire can help them too!
