Lost Neighbourhoods, Lost Ecosystems - unearthing stories of land and people in St James Town

18 June 2017 02:00 pm

Join the Rivers Rising Ambassadors for a fascinating journey into the past, present, and possible future of St James Town. How forests became a neighbourhood, and how that neighbourhood got re-developed to become the densest most diverse part of Toronto - the world in a few city blocks. Heritage, water, trees, gardens, food security, climate change, and of course the story of nearby lost rivers - Castle Frank Brook, Crookshank Creek and Sumac Creek. Linear walk mainly on city streets.
 
Starting point: outside Sherbourne Subway
Walk Leaders: Helen Mills and the St Jamestown Rivers Rising Ambassadors
