Stewardship 2009 Season Kickoff

2009 Poster

The 2009 stewardship season is kicking off with an orientation meeting at Riverdale Farm tomorrow night, April 28, 2009 from 7-9 PM (enter by the gate on Winchester Street). The 2009 season is the most ambitious yet with 10 sites, 7 of them in the Don Watershed.

The program is entirely volunteer. Each team visits their site once a week to perform maintenance and monitoring activities. These include removal of invasive plants, planting and watering of native plants and trees, and monitoring of various biological indicators. Last year, monitoring included flower pollinators, benthic invertebrates and water quality. All training is provided through the program.

If you're interested in this program, you can find out more information by coming to the meeting tomorrow or you can call 416-392-5323 or send an email to
