Spring is in the air!
What better way to celebrate than by getting to know the plants around you?
Join Ioni for a walk from the St. Clair area, down towards Castle Frank, exploring various ravines and green spaces along the way!
We will be looking at various types of plants, and getting to know various plant families. We will be talking about various edible and medicinal uses for plants, including survival foods. We will also be talking about plant chemistry, nutrition, and plant folklore. The role of certain plants within the ecosystem will also be examined, and we'll be looking at the effect invasive species are having in Ontario.
Whenever possible, we will also be looking at other interesting non-plant topics (animals, fungi, etc.). And of course, you will be free to ask all the questions you can imagine throughout the tour!
Our meeting place will be the corner of St. Clair & Avoca. It's really easy to get there from St. Clair Station (on the Yonge line).
Please dress for the weather, as the walk will take place rain or shine!
See you soon!
