WHEN: Sunday, June 11, 2017 from 10:00-12:00pm
WHERE: Humber Marshes

Join Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada and help clean the Humber Marshes, one of the few remaining river mouth marshes in Toronto! As part of Toronto’s largest watershed, the extensive Humber Marshes provide an important breeding habitat for ducks, turtles and fish, and are a significant corridor for migratory song birds and monarch butterflies. More than 60 species of fish live in the river including such sport fish as trout, pike and salmon.

Look out for the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada tent, located on the west side of the parking lot, at the bottom of Windermere Ave (south side of Lake Shore Blvd).

Please contact the Education Department at education@ripleysaquariumofcanada.com if you have any further questions. We can’t wait to “sea” you there!
