Mississauga’s Historic Woodlands

Mississauga’s Historic Woodlands

Virtual Event

Archivist Kyle Neill from the Region of Peel Archives will present historic materials that document the many types of native trees and plants that once grew in abundance in Mississauga. Using land records, maps, annotated survey plans and other materials dating back to the early 1800s, Kyle will point out some areas in Mississauga where diverse trees and plants used to grow, and present records from the 1900s that reveal the extensive deforestation that took place here.
