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 greentoronto@toronto.ca.

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.
