CITY OF TORONTO DESCRIBES SAM SMITH PARK AS A "BIRD SANCTUARY"



The Parks department of the City of Toronto has recently produced a brochure titled "Birding in Toronto" that is available for free at City libraries.

The publication comes from the Toronto Bird Flyways and Sanctuaries Project whose goals are to fill a need for bird protection and to respond to a growing recreational interest in birding.  

The project focuses on habitat restoration work that enhances bird flyway corridors that connect to larger inter-continental ecosystems.

In this brochure, Sam Smith Park is appropriately shown as a "bird sanctuary", an integral link in Toronto's western watershed flyway corridor.

Below are some scans from the publication.
