This morning I met up with naturalist Miles Hearn and his Monday group for a nature walk in Marie Curtis Park and the Arsenal Lands. This marked the last of our walks for the fall session. Miles will continue with a group of winter walks in the new year and then the fabulous spring walks. These are all administered by the Toronto District School Board.
This late in the season there are not so many birds around in the woods and fields, but the winter ducks like mergansers and bufflehead are making an appearance.
We saw a tamarack this morning. In our area there are more larch, the tamarack’s cousin.
There is a great deal of Japanese knotweed in the park
