Turtle Protectors - High Park Community Event
Join Turtle Protectors High Park to learn about a new initiative to protect turtles. We'll start at the High Park Nature Centre and end at Grenadier Pond. Along the way, you'll learn about the turtles in High Park, the threats they face, and what you can do to help protect Ontario's turtles which are all designated Species At Risk.
Turtle Protectors is supported by Indigenous Elders and community, Indigenous Land Stewardship Circle, Msit No'kmaq, Toronto Animal Services, Parks, Forestry and Recreation and the Indigenous Affairs Office at the City of Toronto, Taiaiako'n Historical Preservation Society, and the High Park Nature Centre.
We would also like to thank the Heart Lake Turtle Troopers for sharing their resources and best practices with us and to the Snapping Turtle relative who inspired this whole project while laying her eggs on June 8, 2021.
Thank you to TD Park People Grants for funding this event.
