It is sponsored by the Don Watershed Regeneration Council and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA).
The “Walk” features seven of the rain gardens of Riverdale that were implemented as a project carried out by Citizens for a Safe Environment under the city’s Community Program for Storm Water Management.
Michael Cherendoff, of the TRCA is leading the walk while Karen Buck, Project Manager and President of Citizens for a Safe Environment, will provide the commentary, so that by the end of the tour, all participants will understand how a rain garden is constructed, how downspouts are disconnected, and, how rain is used to replenish our local watershed not overload our sewer system appreciate why the city has implemented a by-law requiring mandatory downspout disconnection. Gain a new appreciation for environmental actions that have been taken in Toronto’s Riverdale area.
