Your backyard is more than just a comforting green space to relax in. It’s an important part of Toronto’s urban habitat for both plants and animals. From May through December 2018, LEAF is working in partnership with Toronto Wildlife Centre and Ontario Power Generation to provide tips on how to ensure your backyard is beautiful and welcoming for both humans and wildlife.
