The Etobicoke Creek is now protected by Ontario's Greenbelt! Join the Toronto Environmental Alliance (TEA) on October 21st for a pop-up celebration and guided walks in the ravine.
For more than 12 years, Ontario’s Greenbelt has protected almost 2 million acres of farmland, forests, lakes, rivers, and wetlands. In fact, the Greenbelt contains so many precious waterways, it could be thought of as Ontario’s bluebelt.
After 8 years of campaigning with victories all along the way, it’s official: we’ve grown the Greenbelt into our city's borders, west of the Rouge River. The Greenbelt adds another layer of protection to our precious ravines from their start in their headwaters north of the city to Lake Ontario.
To show our gratitude to the thousands of people who joined our 8-year campaign to grow the Greenbelt into our urban rivers, TEA is holding a pop-up celebration to connect to our precious ravines and celebrate their new protection under the Greenbelt.
On Saturday, October 21st, join our celebrations and explore the Etobicoke Creek!
When: Saturday, October 21st, 12 pm to 3 pm
Where: Marie Curtis Park
Visit the info tent to learn about the Greenbelt, share your concerns and priorities for the ravines, pick up resources, kids activity books, guides and a Greenbelt tote bag.
