An estimated 3% of Ontario’s Tallgrass habitat is all that remains of this vanishing ecosystem. To help address this challenge, the Weston Family Park Challenge is supporting Tallgrass Ontario’s five-acre prairie at Downsview Park. This project will educate local school children and a city-wide audience about the importance of biodiversity and habitat preservation. Strong partnerships will support the planting of native species, community engagement and the long-term maintenance of the site.
