Come and explore the Humber Arboretum with us. Discover the trees of the Carolinian forest — the deciduous forest of southern Ontario. It is a season to notice the remarkable bark, and unique buds and shapes of trees. It’s also maple sugaring season! Let’s learn how First Peoples related to this forest and how they made maple sugar. You might also meet a famous explorer, Étienne Brûlé!
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.
