Wildflowers attract butterflies and birds
Right next door to WE26, the Meadoway is transforming this fall as crews till and seed the land with native plants. Seeds are being gathered locally from areas such as the Humber River trail system. Native plants like wildflowers and grasses provide the perfect stopover for migrating butterflies and birds. They use the plants as cover to rest and feed on the seeds and flowers. The Meadoway is a 16 kilometer linear park with a multi-use walking and biking trail stretching from downtown Toronto to the Rouge National Urban Park.
