Nature Walk in the Don Valley

Salmon in the Don River

I met up with Miles Hearn and his nature walk group this morning at the foot of Beechwood Drive. This is a section of the Don Valley which was once very polluted by industry along the river. The industry is long gone and the river and the valley it flows through continue to recover.

We watched Pacific salmon jumping up over a small falls on the river for a while. These Coho and Chinook salmon have been planted in Lake Ontario for as long as I can remember.

Here are some of the highlights of this morning’s walk in pictures:
