Tree Walk 1: Railpath
Trees and Coexistence with Richard Aaron
West Toronto Railpath
Meeting point: In front of MOCA, south end (158 Sterling Road)
Tickets: $10 general admission, $8 member pricing
Discover the diversity of tree species that grow along the West Toronto Railpath with field naturalist, Richard Aaron. This unique park area of Toronto is home to a variety of invasive and endemic trees—some arrived here on their own, while others were planted; some species are well-behaved, while others are more aggressive. Spend time with the different tree species and learn their characteristics, behaviours, and how they live together.
