Tommy Thompson Park is an urban wilderness located on the Leslie Street Spit – a constructed landform that stretches 5km into Lake Ontario on the Toronto Waterfront.

Despite its artificial origins, Tommy Thompson Park has evolved into a significant natural habitat and an essential stopover location for migratory birds and other wildlife. Its diverse ecosystems provide a vital refuge for various plant and animal species within the bustling urban environment of Toronto.

Join us for the captivating sequel in our webinar series highlighting this vibrant wilderness in the heart of our city.

Hear from our experts about the significance of restoring habitat on this unique landform, and find out how Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) has created habitats by crafting sheltered embayments, wetlands, meadows, and more.
