The forests of Lambton Park were historically shaped by fire which allowed an impressive and now very rare black oak-red pine savanna to form there. Join forest ecologist Michael Henry to walk among 200-year old oaks and red pines, through beautiful prairie grasses, and learn more about Toronto's urban old-growth forests. After the guided walk, if people wish, they can walk part of the Carrying Place trail between Lambton Park and Jane Subway station.
