PLANTING NATIVE GRASSES IN PARK

Indian Grass
On Saturday, members from FOSS (Friends of Sam Smith Park), LEGS (Lakeshore Environmental Gardners) and CCFEW (Citizens Concerned for the Etobicoke Waterfront) planted Ontario prairie grasses around the skating trail.  Species included Indian Grass, Maiden Grass and Switchback.  These are all native, extremely hardy, colourful in late Summer and hosts to butterflies and other insects.  Some wildflowers were also planted in what remains of the meadow.
