Title: High Park Poetry Walk
Date: August 6, 2016
Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Description: Join poets Maureen Scott Harris, Maureen Hynes, Dilys Leman, Nicholas Power, Sheila Stewart and Julie Roorda for a poetry walk along with Jon Hayes of the High Park Nature Centre, Helen Mills of Lost Rivers and John Wilson of Bring Back the Don. Hear poems inspired by the Park’s black oak savannahs, the serpentine wanderings of buried creeks and the dramatic 2003 discovery of the aquifer whose source was buried 10,000 years ago, as well as the plants, birds, snakes and insects that make their home in the Park. And – the poets promise to feature treasures from the Nature Centre’s “word of the week!”
Rain or shine. Moderate difficulty; some slopes and mud paths; please wear appropriate footwear.
