TFN March Lecture: Toronto Ravine Strategy

Toronto Ravine Strategy – with Wendy Strickland; City of Toronto’s Ravine Strategy Project Manager.

Ravines are the heart of Toronto’s natural heritage system.  With population growth and climate change putting increased pressure on ravines, the Toronto Ravine Strategy provides a coordinated vision and approach to managing the ravines. In January 2020, City Council unanimously adopted the Ravine Strategy Implementation report which outlined the key actions and recommendations to implement the Strategy over the next ten years. Join Wendy Strickland, Project Manager for the Ravine Strategy with the City of Toronto, for an overview of the Strategy and what’s been achieved to-date.

Now the Project Manager for Toronto’s Ravine Strategy, Wendy has spent almost two decades working to engage community members, partners and other stakeholders in learning about, improving and protecting these special natural areas in Toronto. She holds a degree in Botany and Environmental Science and a Masters of Forest Conservation focusing on Urban Forestry both from the University of Toronto.

Toronto Field Naturalists wishes to acknowledge this Land through which we walk. For thousands of years, the Land has been shared by the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe. Toronto is situated on the Land within the Toronto Purchase, Treaty 13, the traditional and treaty Lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is also part of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum, a covenant agreement between Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Wendat peoples and allied nations to peaceably share the land and all its resources. Today, the Land is home to peoples of numerous nations. We are all grateful to have the opportunity to continue to care for and share the beauty of this Land.
