Jane’s Walk

Beachcombing: Glass, Bricks, Rocks and Sticks on the Etobicoke Waterfront

Led By: Jimmy Vincent

May 7, 2016, 8:30 AM

Beachcombing is the practice of searching a beach for things of value, interest or utility. The shorelines of Colonel Samuel Smith Park contain many clues about the natural and cultural history of the park, and its importance for wildlife and migratory species. Join Jimmy Vincent from Humber Arboretum and Janette Harvey from the City of Toronto to explore the connections between the built and natural environment along the Etobicoke waterfront. The walk ends at a community planting event – feel free to stay and plant native wetland and pollinator species.JanesMap
