Media Advisory: Mayor David Miller to attend grand opening for the Centre For Urban Ecology at Humber Arboretum
Mayor David Miller will speak at the grand opening celebration of Toronto’s newest LEED certified green building: The Centre for Urban Ecology at the Humber Arboretum.

Replacing the Nature Centre, the new facility provides a first-rate venue for education and research on urban ecology and an up-to-date example of environmental sustainability. The centre, which is made from environmentally-friendly building materials and recycled material from the previous building, is an energy-efficient building, which uses passive heating and cooling technologies. It implements on-site waste and grey water management and features a green roof and many other green-building techniques.

Date: Thursday, November 8
Time: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Location: The Centre for Urban Ecology at the Humber Arboretum
Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning
Humber North Campus, 205 Humber College Blvd.

The centre is a joint venture between City of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning, and Toronto Region and Conservation.
