Celebrating biodiversity along the West Toronto Railpath

The upcoming Railpath milkweed planting day is also a great opportunity to enjoy variety of native plants along the West Toronto Railpath. Prior to construction of the Railpath, we collected seeds of indigenous plants growing in the native sandy soil and replanted them after construction was complete.  By highlighting these plants, we hope to spark an interest in the urban flora of our city.

Here’s a list of the plantings on the site:
