For those of us who care about the environment and the survival of creatures of all kinds, finding a way to actually do something to help them survive, enhances our own lives and will be a legacy to be proud of. Volunteer Stewards have been working with the City of Toronto since 1996, to protect and restore the remaining natural areas of High Park including large areas of Savannah with Black Oak trees and related flora and fauna. During the spring, summer and fall we plant, collect seeds, and remove invasive species from restoration sites.
