About High Park Nature
We are dedicated to educating and informing park users and Toronto residents about High Park's unique natural heritage and the steps being taken to protect and restore it. These natural features are a legacy from John and Jemima Howard to the citizens of Toronto – a legacy that we, in turn, can pass on to future generations.
Since the 1990s our volunteers have been active in collecting native plant seeds within the Park, planting native species in numerous locations, clearing invasive species, holding educational sessions and advocating for park policies and practices that preserve and restore the Park's natural heritage.
About the High Park Nature website
The purpose of the High Park Nature website is to raise awareness of the significant natural features of High Park and to promote respectful enjoyment of the park. This website contains a wealth of information about the Park including its geology, flora, fauna, habitats and restoration efforts.
In 2010 we established the original highparknature.org website. In 2019 the site's contents were updated and transferred to this WordPress-based site. This enables our material to accommodate a variety of browsing devices and take advantage of many additional features.
We welcome your feedback, suggestions and written contributions.
