Residents invited to Decorate The Trees in bird-friendly style in Glen Stewart Ravine

The Friends of the Glen Stewart Ravine will host a Decorate The Trees event on the morning of Saturday, Dec. 8.

Participants in the family-friendly event are asked to meet at the Glen Manor entrance to the ravine. The event goes from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and will feature bird-friendly tree decorating, a scavenger hunt and other seasonal nature activities.

Refreshments and materials will be provided and everyone is welcome to attend

Decorate The Trees is supported by the Beach Garden Society and Courage Foods.

Also, on Thursday, Dec. 27 there will be a 1.5-kilometre guided walk in Glen Stewart Ravine with Joanne Doucette of Toronto Field Naturalists.

The event meetup is on the southwest corner of Beech Avenue and Kingston Road at 1:30 p.m. The walk will end at Queen Street East at 3:30 p.m.

Participants can enjoy the great outdoors and learn about many wild creatures including deer, coyotes, cottontail rabbits, opossums, squirrels, raccoons, mink and mice, and how they leave their tracks, scat, and bite marks behind.

All family members are encouraged to enjoy this winter event, though ice cleats may be needed. Service animals are accepted but it is advised to leave other pets at home.
