A wilderness area in Canada’s largest urban center? That’s right! Only one hour from downtown Toronto, Rouge National Urban Park is an easily accessible wilderness get-away that encompasses wetlands, meadows, mature trees, and historic farms.

Join us at this free event to learn about the history, features and value of this important greenspace at the Toronto and Region Remedial Action Plan’s next Lake Ontario Evening. This free event is part of the Lake Ontario Evenings speaker series. Snacks are provided and drinks are available for purchase.
