It’s a gorgeous spring day here in High Park! We really can’t complain about our work location when there are days like today (no matter how many times you get snowed on, hailed on or rained on trying to run across to the washrooms! 😉 ). This weather has also brought on the Cherry Blossoms and folks are excited to experience the spring tradition of Sakura Hanami (Cherry Blossom viewing).
At this point the Cherry Blossoms are just starting to open. The Nature Centre thinks that this weekend should be the best time for Sakura Hanami. Check out their great Cherry Blossom Tracking pages here and see what we had to say last year at this time here.
We also have our new and returning Program Instructors and Camp Counsellors joining us for some fun and informative staff training this week. I have to say … Our staff are pretty darn awesome!
On that note – we have a few spaces left in our Spring Garden & Hiking Environmental Education Programs for school groups so book your program soon! Our School Programs are linked to the Ontario Curriculum and include a broad range of interactive activities for students to enjoy.
We love spring here in High Park. It’s such a magical time with something new to see every day! Alas unfortunately I don’t think this poor little fella is going to be met with as much enthusiasm as the Cherry Blossoms …
