It's a perfect time to walk in the spring woods - or visit the Morgan Arboretum.
The Morgan Arboretum is a forest reserve at the western tip of the island of Montreal. It's part of McGill University's Macdonald Campus in Ste. Anne de Bellevue. At this time of year, it's bursting with life.
Chris Cloutier works at the Arboretum and he's leading a number of walks in the spring woods. He joins Elizabeth Robertson to talk about what's out there - as well as about National Wildlife Week.

Jane Jacobs passed away in 2006 in Toronto, but her legacy lives on. For the past five years, around her birthday (which is today), volunteers in cities around the world have organized "Jane's Walks." The idea is to get people out exploring their neighbourhood and meeting their neighbours.
This weekend, there will be more than 60 different Jane's Walks taking place in Montreal and in Quebec City. Tristan Bougie coordinates the walks at the Montreal Urban Ecology Centre, and he joins Elizabeth Robertson in studio.
