Community Pride: Native Plant Diversity Nature Walk in High Park Details

Join the Nature Centre and botanist Ryan Godfrey to discover the amazing world of sexual diversity in native plants! We’ll head out for a hike through the park and get to know their habitat preferences, pollinator partners, reproductive systems and so much more!

Note: The Community Pride event is open to everyone! We extend a special invitation to folks from the 2SLGBTQQIA+ community to join us in High Park and celebrate the amazingly inclusive world of plant diversity.

Ryan Godfrey

Ryan Godfrey is a botanist with over a decade of experience learning all about plants and the ways humans interact with them.

He hopes to inspire in others an obsession, curiosity and love for the fascinating world of plants.

Thursday, June 27, 7-9PM

This event will begin at the High Park Nature Centre’s Forest School building located at 375 Colborne Lodge Drive.

A number of changes were made to the travel network within High Park as part of the High Park Movement Strategy that might influence your decision to drive to High Park. In case you’re driving we strongly recommend you to park your car at the public parking lot near Grenadier Cafe.

We continue to recommend using the TTC or biking as the best way to get to High Park and the Nature Centre. The Nature Centre is situated just a 5-minute walk from the High Park Subway Station. In case you were biking, there are bike racks available in front of the Nature Centre.

Please note, High Park is closed to cars on the weekends. If your event is on a weekend, you will need to park outside the park and walk in, or take transit.

We welcome registered therapy or guide dogs to our events. However, we kindly ask that that family pets be left at home.
