Look up and watch 50 million birds migrating through our city. We are now in the peak of spring migration and Toronto sits on a major migratory flyway. So let’s keep the cat indoors; keep the bird bath full, and keep binos at the ready. To enjoy the dawn chorus, rise at 5:00 am and step outdoors.
Not down the drain; Our sewage treatment plants work hard on our behalf, but they are designed to treat only three kinds of waste. You know the first two, and the third is toilet paper. Not Down the Drain is the city’s campaign to protect our municipal sewage systems and the water of Lake Ontario. Many things should never go down the drain. “flushable” wipes, for example. Fats, oils and greases for another.
