ONLINE Resources and Meetings

Hello, High Park Stewards! Since field events will not be held this year due to COVID-19, we're trying something new and different! During Spring/Summer season of 2020, every two weeks, there will be a package made available on the High Park Nature website of at-home resources, projects, and activities. 6 in total!

We also will be recording and posting videos of our remaining educational sessions in 2020. So now, even if you miss a live event, you can catch up on your favourite nature topics at any time.

Our 2020 Stewards Summary is out!

Check out our blog post or download a 2019 handy file (PDF) for info on a pre-COVID year of activities.
