Todmorden Mills Wildflower Preserve

From: Toronto's Ravines and Urban Forests


Naturalist Jason Ramsay-Brown describes the Todmorden Mills Wildflower Preserve, "one of the most wonderful fifteen minute hikes Toronto has to offer." Following intense human use over the centuries, three decades of citizen stewardship has transformed the preserve in to a place of remarkable natural beauty and a haven for native species.
