IN PRAISE OF GOLDENROD

In early fall, the fields are awash in gold as beautiful native goldenrod blooms. This plant, often wrongly maligned as the cause of hayfever (the real culprit is ragweed), offers food and shelter to a wide variety of insects. Read more and see Wildflowers of High Park.

 

PHRAGMITES TREATMENT

Phragmites australis has invaded Grenadier Pond. Starting this fall Toronto Region Conservation will begin a multi-year removal strategy, with support from Urban Forestry.
