City’s Community Stewardship Program Orientation on April 24

The City of Toronto’s Community Stewardship Program (CSP) will host an orientation session on April 24, 7:00pm, at the City of Toronto Archives (255 Spadina Road).

CSP is a fantastic program that gives volunteers weekly opportunities to learn about and care for nature in our city’s ravines and forests. Program stewards plant native trees & shrubs, help control invasive species, maintain trails, and conduct ecological monitoring. No prior experience is necessary, and all materials and training are provided by the City.

Seven CSP sites operate from May to September, including sites at Humber Bay Butterfly Habitat, Nordheimer Ravine, and many in the Don River Valley. Most teams meet after work on weekdays, save for the Milne Hollow team which meets 10:00am to noon on Thursdays.

Learn more about CSP orientation from their facebook announcement or about the program itself on their website. To RSVP for orientation, register for the program, or to get more information, email CSP at

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.
