Thirsty City Self Guided Tours

Sunday, January 21, 2018, 2 pm - PATHology and Geology: Redux. We’ll revisit a popular mid-winter walk route: the PATH system beneath the towers of the downtown core, where we find proxies for nature in a manufactured landscape. Ed Freeman and John Wilson will lead a circular tour to discover memorable stone hewn from the ground in far-flung quarries, fashioned into cladding and sculptures throughout the PATH system. About 2 km. walk, on indoor walkways and street sidewalks with some stairs. A few public washrooms are open on Sunday. Meet at the southeast corner of Yonge and Adelaide.

Sunday, December 17, 2017, 2 pm - Solstice Storytelling Walk with the Rivers Rising Ambassadors Join us on lost Mud Creek for a magic walk at Evergreen, the most beautiful restoration site in Toronto. Come early or stay late to enjoy the festive village.
Walk Leaders. Helen Mills and the Rivers Rising Ambassadors Meet at the Watershed Consciousness Wall, at the Evergreen Brickworks. Check our site for updates closer to the day.

Plans for walks are constantly being developed. We welcome your suggestions for interesting walks. Maybe you might like to lead a walk. Send your suggestion to: The Streamwalker.

NOTE to leaders of walks who plan to bring their groups to join one of our walks. While we always welcome more people to our walks, it would be appreciated if you would make arrangements with the walk leader well before hand. Adding a significant number of people (eight or more) at the last minute can make it difficult to see that all get the benefit of the walk You can e-mail The Streamwalker and he will attempt to get you in touch with the walk leader so you can make special arrangements.

No charge is made for Lost River Walks. Toronto Green Community and Toronto Field Naturalists provide these and other walks and events as a public service. If you would like to support the work of these organizations, you may join TFN or TGC. Information on joining is provided by walk leaders or you may check their websites: Toronto Field Naturalists or Toronto Green Community.
