Event description

Description

Bob Hunter Memorial park is a 193-hectare naturalized park located in the headwaters of the Rouge River watershed in Markham. Accessible since 2006 but officially opened in 2016, the restoration work throughout the park has been ongoing for over a decade. Surrounded by significant urban expansion, Bob Hunter Memorial Park provides a critical connection between local and regional natural heritage corridors on the western margins of the Rouge National Urban Park.

This trip provides the opportunity to discuss the specifics of wetland design and implementation throughout the park, as well as the other multi-framework restoration projects which interconnect throughout the area. The TRCA’s Restoration and Infrastructure group has worked closely with a variety of stakeholders and community groups to create an urban park that embraces the principles of biodiversity and ecological restoration. Led by the TRCA, restoration work throughout the area includes the planting of native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers; targeted wildlife habitat creation and the creation of numerous wetland and meadow systems.

Trip Leader: Ryan Stephenson - SERO Field Trip Coordinator; Project Manager, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA)
