From: Toronto's Ravines and Urban Forests


Naturalist Jason Ramsay-Brown defines Toronto’s ravines and urban forests as the city’s greatest civic treasure. He asserts that the definition of a "world class city" is changing, with ecosystem health and access to nature now rivaling more traditional urban considerations.
