We were back in the heart of Leslieville on Saturday, June 15th for the annual Leslieville Tree Festival, organized in partnership with Councillor Paula Fletcher, Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation and the Leslieville BIA (Business Improvement Area).
LEAF and the Toronto Wildlife Centre (TWC) are joining forces to raise awareness on the connection between urban wildlife and the urban forest. Supported by Ontario Power Generation, the Backyard Biodiversity campaign has returned for 2019! And, this year, we are challenging Toronto residents to share what they’re doing to improve our #BackyardBiodiversity.
May 15th, 2019 might have seemed like a regular Wednesday morning, just another spring day, but there was something celebratory in the air as the sun broke free from the clouds. Gathered by the community garden at 111 Kendleton Dr were a group of dedicated and inspired people, including LEAF staff, our program partners and local residents. Together, we were celebrating the successful completion of the first phase of a very special project which aims to increase tree canopy cover while increasing community engagement at Toronto Community Housing properties.
