Connecting With Nature
The Meadoway: Planning and Restoring Pollinator Habitat in a utility corridor in Toronto, OntarioThe Meadoway is transforming a hydro corridor in Scarborough, ON into a vibrant sixteen-kilometre stretch of urban greenspace and meadowlands that will become one of Canada’s largest linear urban parks. Cyclists and pedestrians will soon be able to travel from the heart of downtown Toronto to Rouge National Urban Park without ever leaving nature. Over the next seven years, this site will become a place filled with butterflies, birds and wildflowers – a rich meadow landscape realized on a scale never before seen in Toronto. This webinar will help to showcase and walk you through the overall planning, permits/policies, education/outreach, communication and meadow restoration needed to create a project similar to The Meadoway.
Creating Pollinator Habitat: Opportunities and Examples from Roadsides and other Right-of-WaysPollinating insects are in crisis across North America, with steep declines in some groups. This introductory webinar in our 2019-2020 Pollinator Series will discuss the opportunities that transportation, utility and other corridors present to increase and improve available pollinator habitat across the landscape. Examples from all sectors will be discussed, and the highlights of CWF’s 2019 pilot project in eastern Ontario will be presented.
Helping Canada’s Pollinators in The GardenCanada’s pollinators play a critical role in our ecosystems, food production and economy through pollination. Some are also important in pest control. These tiny allies face many challenges, such as pesticide use and loss of habitat, making it more important than ever to support them. A great place to start is to ensure your outdoor space is pollinator-friendly.
