Yellow Creek Walk

For anyone who wants to get out of the house on Sunday, here's an opportunity. Peter Hare and I will be leading a walk along the route of Yellow Creek, one of the so-called lost rivers of Toronto. For anyone who doesn't know, about a dozen small creeks coursed through small ravines all over downtown Toronto. Now most of them are buried in storm sewers. Peter Hare and the North Toronto Green Community have created a very interesting eco-historical website that details the routes of these former creeks and the local history behind them. You can view the website at:

Our walk is on Sunday, August 7, starting at 2 PM at the entrance to Davisville subway station. The walk is free and suitable for all walkers. Should last about 2 hours.

Very interesting! I now live about 200 m from Yellow Creek but never knew what it was called until now. I hope you'll do this talk/walk again in 2006!
