Meet at south west corner of East Lynn Ave. and Danforth Ave.
The string of ravines that link almost-forgotten Small’s Creek are hidden treasures of Ward 32. Join the Friends of Small’s Creek Ravines with John Wilson when they show off the improvements being implemented to preserve these unusual islands of biodiversity in east Toronto. Special guest Ruthanne Henry, landscape ecologist, park planner and ravine champion, will help identify rare and special trees and shrubs in the environmentally significant Williamson ravines. Along the route there are some stairs and uneven ground, so please wear good footwear and expect a two-hour adventure ending near Coxwell and Gerrard.
