This alternative secondary school located near High Park in Toronto has been committed to environmental education since the 1970s. A few years ago, a garden featuring native trees and shrubs was established. The school also hosts a Monarch Way Station with milkweed and a pollinator garden which includes an assortment of native flowers, herbs, grasses and several bee hotels. Another noteworthy initiative this school is involved with is Bird Studies Canada’s Project NestWatch, a citizen science initiative focused on collecting data on nesting birds.
