Trees are the guardians of Toronto's unique ravine landscape. Join us to celebrate High Park's amazing diversity of trees, its many beautiful ravines, and learn about the City of Toronto's ravine strategy. We'll visit and get to know the trees, and see how they're holding everything together!

Join us and the Taiaiako’n Historical Preservation Society for a fall gathering to honor the Earth and the Life-giving wonder of Creation. As Thanksgiving holiday approaches, guided by Elder Frank Miller (Mohawk, Six Nations), Laureen (Blu) Waters (Cree/Metis/Micmac) and Donna Powless (Cayuga, Six Nations) we invite a Re-Storying that acknowledges High Park as Indigenous Land, the long work that Indigenous peoples have done to protect the Earth, and the work left yet to do. As we gather around a sacred fire and give thanks to the Earth, we renew our treaty relations and friendship. Songs and drumming will draw our hearts together as the days grow shorter. We will contemplate, affirm and show our care for the Earth with a planting of seedlings in OurSpace garden, we will share in a homemade Feast, and in the tradition of potluck you are invited to bring a dessert offering (if you have capacity). High Park Nature Centre Land Acknowledgment We acknowledge that we are situated upon the traditional territories of the Wendat, Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe and the Mississaugas of the Credit. For over 10,000 years Indigenous peoples have lived in this area and we recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples on this land. High Park is located within “Dish With One Spoon” Territory. The “Dish with One Spoon” is a Wampum Belt Covenant between the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas to share and protect this land together by using only one spoon to eat from the Dish and ensuring the Dish is never empty. When we are in High Park, we are all part of this agreement and are also responsible for respectfully sharing and caring for this land and the animals who live here.

Who comes out after we go to bed? Can you hear the bats flying overhead, or the haunting who? who? of the owls? What was that rustle in the bushes? Join us for a night-time hike to discover High Park after dark!
