Tour description

Welcome to Toronto!

In my tour, guests will learn how the wrath of Hurricane Hazel, helped prepare Toronto for Climate Change and create a world class urban nature preserve.

Discover how indigenous plants promote pollenator proliferation and how pollutants are naturally filtered out of the ecosystem.

Learn how the Huron-Wendat people produced "aspirin and vitamin C" and how trees, communicate. Guests will also walk in the shadow of the trees that helped defeat Napoleon and inspire Canada's most famous group of painters.

Lucky guests might spot: woodland birds, evidence of beavers and raptors.

Guests will leave feeling bathed in nature and secure in the notion that the City of Toronto is winning the fight against climate change.
