High Park Native Plant Nursery
The City of Toronto Parks & Recreation Division, High Park Native Plant Nursery was established in order to address the need of propagating plants for the restoration and preservation of the High Park Black Oak Savannah and other natural areas in the Park. In addition, the nursery supports the native plant propagation program that supplies plants for use in natural areas, ornamental beds, schoolyards and community gardens throughout Toronto. The efforts of the many volunteers involved in the High Park Stewardship Program have significantly contributed to the plant collection in this nursery. Volunteer activities www.highpark.org or inquiry line: 416-392-1748 This site has developed over many years, transformed by both human design and natural processes to become a dynamic and vibrant habitat.
