Special Lecture: Connecting Toronto’s Urban and Ecological Life

Jane Weninger, Senior Planner with Toronto City Planning, will outline the City of Toronto’s framework towards a more ecological city. Jane will walk us through some of the City’s existing policy documents, including the Official Plan environment and climate policies, the Biodiversity Strategy and the Ravine Strategy, and the role biodiversity and ecology play in the Toronto Green Standard, the City’s sustainable design and performance requirements.  A few pointers will be provided on best practices for nature advocates to engage with the City in consultations.

The Toronto Field Naturalists wish to acknowledge this land through which we walk. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississauga of the Credit River. Today it is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to be on this land.
