Meet 10 am at Humewood entrance (intersection of Humewood and Heathdale); if coming by car, best parking place is parking lot of Phil White Arena and walk up path to site.

Saturday 19th May: Plant Identification hike with Toronto Bruce Trail Club, led by Marilyn MacKellar (416-651-4120) and Glynn Richardson (905-426-5600 7-9 pm). Meet at St Clair W subway exit on Heath St W at 10 am. This hike will follow the Cedarvale Ravine north from Heath St W. It will be very slow. It will focus on plants in the area, and there’s a surprising variety for a small ravine, plus a bit of history. We will stop and go for the length of the hike, so be prepared for slow progress. The distance we travel will depend on what we see. Bring snacks and water. And a camera, perhaps. Maybe a pen.
