Q&A with the Coordinator / Outdoor Educator At The Humber Arboretum's Centre For Urban Ecology
As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected?
Humber Arboretum staff work very closely with Humber College's Public Security to ensure that your visit is as enjoyable as possible. If anything unexpected happens, notify staff members located at the Centre for Urban Ecology, and we will work as quickly as possible to help you out in any way we can.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
My favourite part of my job is interacting with the children that visit the Humber Arboretum for outdoor education, nature camp, or just to explore this amazing urban green space.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
One thing that makes the Humber Arboretum so unique is the fact that it has 5 different ecosytems within a 10-minute walk from the Centre for Urban Ecology (Toronto's first LEED Gold certified building) located in the public garden area. Whether it's the forest, ponds, river, meadow, or our newly constructed wetlands, the 6 kilometers of hiking trails throughout the Humber Arboretum will lead you through many different natural areas for you to explore.
“It's a very beautiful and serene environment to spend quiet time and make use of for memorable events like birthdays and weddings. I really recommend it.”
