Experience Nature in the City at Evergreen Brickworks

Don Valley, Greater Toronto Area, Canada

About the tour

A natural gateway to Toronto's extensive network of ravines, wetlands and walking trails, for 100 years the "bricks that built Toronto" were manufactured at this former brickmaking factory . Today the once-contaminated industrial site has been restored and revitalized into one of the world's top 10 geotourism destinations as named by National Geographic. On this 45 minute tour we will explore the site's ecology and archaeology, see how derelict industrial buildings have found new purposes, and learn how cities can become more sustainable.
