Lakeshore Campus School Programs

During May and June only, the Humber Arboretum's Outdoor Education Programming expands to include Humber College's Lakeshore Campus. The campus is connected to Colonel Samuel Smith Park, which is one of Toronto's most amazingly diverse urban green spaces and is located on the shores of Lake Ontario. Programs at this location are run out of the H Building, one of Humber's architecturally beautiful cottages with a unique history.

School programs are offered at Lakeshore Campus with the support of CCFEW (Citizens Concerned About the Future of the Etobicoke Waterfront).

Bird Festival T-Shirts
At this year's Bird Festival volunteers were outfitted with T-Shirts featuring a beautiful picture of a Whimbrel with the caption "Colonel Sam Smith Park SPRING BIRD FESTIVAL". Many attendees wanted to buy one but we did not have an agreement with the City allowing us to sell them. We have since negotiated an arrangement which permits sales by CCFEW with the proceeds being used to offset future Bird Festival costs.

If you would like to buy one there are a number of small and medium sized T-shirts left which will be available at the June Bird Walk. The cost is $15.

Backyard Tree Planting Program

LEAF's subsidized Backyard Tree Planting Program helps you get the right tree in the right place. For approximately $150 to $220 per tree you will get a site consultation in your yard with an arborist, a five to eight foot tall tree (or two to four feet tall for evergreen trees) and full planting service. LEAF also has a Do-It-Yourself option, for those who like to get their hands dirty! For more information visit LEAF.
