Wetlands — The Hardest Working Ecosystems in Town

tumblr_ly2elzVodn1r8l8pwo1_1280I’ve started writing about environment issues in the city for Torontoist, an opportunity I’m really excited about. My first piece on 1.62 kilometres of provincially significant wetlands in the city, and how Toronto and the province are working to protect those spaces, went up earlier today.

From the piece:

Picture Toronto’s ecological landscape and its ravines and much-loved islands come to mind. The city’s wetlands on the other hand, six of which are provincially significant for the habitat they provide imperilled plants and animals, are used to being overlooked. Even still, you’d be hard-pressed to find a harder working ecosystem.
