Historic Ravine Surveys
Between 1973-1978, Toronto Field Naturalists surveyed several of Toronto’s ravines, capturing details regarding flora and fauna, natural features, human use, and much more. These surveys provide an interesting glimpse into our natural heritage, and continue to be referenced by more contemporary research as some of the earliest studies of Toronto’s ravines.
