Dealing with invasives at the Flats

Yesterday morning, TFN stewards converged on Cottonwood Flats to help reduce the spread of invasive tansy!

Special thanks to the City of Toronto’s Natural Environment and Community Programs (Urban Forestry) for inviting & hosting us, providing tools & expertise, and hauling away the dozens of kilos of tansy flowers we clipped! Such a wonderful opportunity for TFNers to reconnect and contribute to the care of this little spot in Toronto that means so much to us.

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.
