Friend of Nature Hike at Tommy Thompson Park

September 21 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Broad-winged hawk

Join us for a special Friends of Nature monthly donors hike at Tommy Thompson Park. Led by Charles Bruce-Thompson, Past-President of Toronto Field Naturalists, we will search for pollinators and learn about bird banding at the park’s bird research station. Make sure to bring your binoculars, as we hope to see horned grebes, tree swallows and broad-winged hawks during the busy migration period.

We will meet at the park’s front gates for juice and a light breakfast of fruits and pastries before heading out to learn about the incredible species at Tommy Thompson Park.  

This will be a 5 km hike, walking mostly on flat surfaces, to and from the bird banding station.  

Tommy Thompson Park is located at the foot of Leslie Street, south of Lakeshore Boulevard East. Parking is available on site and on Leslie Street and Unwin Avenue. The park is also TTC accessible.  

If you’re interested in attending, please contact Kate Douglas at 1-800-4402366 x 233 or at kated@ontarionature.org 

If you’re not a Friend of Nature monthly donor, you can learn more about the program and how you can join here. Friend of Nature members are a special group of supporters that take action for nature each and every day through ongoing monthly gifts that help us to respond to urgent issues. Ontario Nature hosts events throughout the year to thank and celebrate our Friend of Nature members.
