Pomona Mills Park Conservationists Inc. Community Alcove Planting
This project was part of a rehabilitation effort on the land along the East Don River within Pomona Mills Park. The project was aimed at planting native bare root shrub and tree species to prevent invasive species from infiltrating Pomona Mills Park and to provide habitat for wildlife. The plantings will also add tree cover that will eventually extend to the East Don River.
Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) Environmental GeoTour
This self-guided educational geotour for families, school children and youth explores the greenest grounds at the Markham Museum. Markham residents use a “passport” (a how-to guide for the tour) and Global Positioning System device (GPS) provided by the Markham Museum to discover 15 environmental geocaches on the property which showcase the importance of gardening, biodiversity and water conservation. Visit the Markham Museum website to find out more about this program, which continues in 2014 until September.
