Crothers Woods and Beechwood Wetland

From: Toronto's Ravines and Urban Forests


Naturalist Jason Ramsay-Brown describes the section of the Don River watershed where visitors will discover Crothers Woods, Beechwood Wetland, Cottonwood Flats, and Sun Valley. He discusses how citizen science and stewardship have transformed this once heavily-industrialized and often abused area in to a place of natural beauty.
