Due to the recent passing of a close family member, Dr. Suzanne Simard will be unable to attend this event, scheduled for June 12. The event has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

Recently named to Time’s 100 most influential people 2024 list – in the icon category – Suzanne Simard, UBC professor, leader of The Mother Tree Project, and Spring 2024  Royal Roads University’s Honorary Doctorate recipient will give a public talk at the Dogwood Auditorium during Convocation week.  

Her book, Finding the Mother Tree, brings us into the intimate world of trees, exploring the ways in which trees learn and adapt their behaviors, remember the past, demonstrate agency over the future, and cooperate with a sophistication typically ascribed to humans.
