Learn Toronto History with Toronto Tree Tours
Next Tuesday, July 10, Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests (LEAF) along with the Toronto Public Space Committee will be presenting the first Toronto Tree Tour in Trinity-Bellwoods Park. While everyone is slowly turning their attention to environmental causes, it's important to remember that the natural environment carries as many stories and histories as the more-often-mythologized built environment.
Rather than present itself as a nature-walk, the tour seems like an interesting alternative to field-naturalist walks that sometimes overemphasize ecological perspectives. Perhaps with tour-stop with names like "The Saddest Tree," "Dawn of the Dead," and "Graffiti Flowers," these tours will attract the growing legions of psychogeographers in the city, as well as enviro-enthusiasts, tree-lovers, and Toronto history-lovers.
At 6:00, presentations and light refreshments will be served at St. Christopher House on the corner of Dundas & Ossington, and the tour proper begins at 7:15.
