It’s not the anniversary we wanted to celebrate, but here we are, one pandemic year in Toronto.
We want to bring a bit of positivity to this moment. Maybe these stories will inspire you to get outside this winter, or just remember some of your own special moments that made this year OK!

And had some incredible nature sightings along the way...
We saw that too, while filming this gardening video!
Some sightings came as a bit of a surprise...
They're slithering in there, somewhere!
The resident beavers got very comfy making the ponds their home.

Friends found new ways to hang out together.
No school? No problem.
The kids in camp got to know the Evergreen names for nature spots in and around the site!
