Don Valley Events for April 14-15

Spring and Fall are the seasons for volunteer work in the Don Valley. This weekend marks the advent for some of the Don River groups. I've decided to do a regular Thursday blog that will list all the events I can find for the upcoming weekend. Here are the events that I know about.

Saturday, April 14

Annual FODE Spring Cleanup at Todmorden Mills. 10 AM - 1 PM. Friends of the Don East hosts this recurring event. It gets volunteers to cleanup garbage at Todmorden Mills. Todmorden Mills is flanked by Pottery Road, the Don Valley Parkway and a couple of highrise apartment buildings. All of these generate a lot of garbage and it usually finds its way into the forest. There will be a barbeque and an interpretive walk as well. In partnership with the Todmorden Mills Wildflower Preserve.

Sunday April 15

*** Event Cancelled due to bad trail conditions ***

TORBG Trail Building Day. 10 AM - 4 PM. The Toronto Off-Road Bicycling Group is hosting a trail building day in Crothers' Woods. These sessions seek to improve the biking/hiking trails to make them sustainable for long term use. Tools and gloves will be provided. In partnership with the City of Toronto and the International Mountain Biking Association. Meet at the Loblaws parking lot at 55 Redway Road (off Millwood Road).

P.S. If you know about an event not listed here send me an email and I'll publicize it.
