Glen Stewart Ravine

From: Toronto's Ravines and Urban Forests


Naturalist Jason Ramsay-Brown describes Glen Stewart Ravine in Toronto’s Beach neighbourhood and the genetically-valuable population of red oak (quercus rubra) it supports. He illustrates the increasingly drastic and invasive measures the municipality is forced to take to protect natural areas from heavy and/or inappropriate use.
