Get outside and volunteer with TRCA! Learn all about one of the most exciting greenspace revitalization projects in Canada and how you can get involved in restoring meadow habitat! Students in attendance can receive volunteer hours for participation. Volunteer letters will be emailed following the event.

Location: The Meadoway (Gatineau Hydro Corridor), Toronto. North of 916 Markham Rd, Toronto, ON, M1H 2Y3. Look for the white event tent.

Participants will start with a hike along the hydrocorridor, where we’ll learn why The Meadoway matters and how it will enhance the landscape for people, plants, and animals. Afterwards, together we’ll participate in an action project – a community clean up!
