We spent a sunny afternoon touring Etobicoke’s Colonel Samuel Smith Park with Linda of the TRCA! We had so much fun learning about native wildlife and plants and exploring the marsh and beaches. Thanks to the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority and TD Friends of the Environment Foundation for this opportunity.
