Prairie in My Pocket: Celebrate Fall in High Park

 Student's - Oak Savannah Planting  23

A fully-funded program for priority groups

Deep in Toronto’s beautiful High Park hides a fragment of one of Canada’s most unique and endangered ecosystems, the Black Oak savannah. Tall prairie grasses and wildflowers wave under giant oak trees to support a host of urban wildlife including chipmunks, Blue Jays and monarch butterflies. The High Park Nature Centre invites your group to join us and experience the magic of the savannah first hand:

  • Take a guided walk through a savannah remnant
  • Participate in a planting activity to help our savannah restoration project grow
  • Create your own savannah seed ball to take with you
