Stories of Thomas Montgomery’s Farm along Mimico Creek

Saturday, May 7, 1 p.m. &  Sunday, May 8, 11:30 a.m.
Mimico Creek passes through the land where Thomas Montgomery operated his inn and farm. When he acquired this property in 1830, the creek’s water and watershed were pristine, yet less than two centuries later, their condition is rated as “poor.” Much of the creek is now hidden from view by industrial parks, subdivisions, and cement channelization, but on this Jane’s Walk, we will explore one of its most accessible and tranquil areas. Stories of the area’s flora, fauna, ecology, indigenous peoples and local history may surprise you as they reveal the changes that have taken place over the past 200 years.
Admission: Free
