High Park Stewards AT-HOME

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 for those who are interested in continuing to connect with and contribute to the natural environment during this time of physical distancing. Each package will include a project or activity that you can try at home, ecology-related resources, and nature-based self-care ideas. You can do as little or as much as you would like!

A series of activities for Stewards from Jaclyn Scobie

Week 1: Growing leafy greens and herbs from those leftover pieces in the fridge!

Week 2: Make your own reusable bags!

Week 3: Do a bird survey from your window, balcony or backyard!

Week 4: Do-It-Yourself: Help Lake Ontario and make your own eco-friendly household cleaners!

Week 5: Do-It-Yourself: Container Gardening with Vegetables!

Week 6: Do-It-Yourself: Get ready to eat your grown vegetables and herbs!
