Along with benefiting thousands of public visitors through innovative, hands-on family programs, the Village is a leader in school learning. Each year, 50,000 students visit Black Creek Pioneer Village to take part in fun and educational curriculum-linked programs. With more than ten unique gardens, heritage-breed farm animals, historical artifacts and beautifully restored heritage buildings, Black Creek Pioneer Village preserves the past while helping us better understand the present.
- Tommy Thompson Park – https://tommythompsonpark.ca/ This started park started by accidental wilderness and it has been formed over the past 60+ years. It is home to countless birds and animals and is a Nationally recognized IBA (Important Bird Area) With your support here, invasive plant species can be removed making way for the planting of native species that provide both food sources and habitat for birds on their migratory journey as well as the thousands that call the park home.
- Toronto Waterfront – Tiny trash, and plastics have an incredible impact on the local birds, fish and turtle species. In 2018 TRCA removed 38,894lbs of trash from the Lake Ontario waterfront.
