Enjoy Nature: With the leaves returning on trees, flowers blooming and animals out from hibernation, the spring season presents fantastic learning opportunities. The best to learn about nature is to enjoy the outdoors go on a nature walk in a Toronto Park. To truly capture the experience, bring a note pad and pencil to gather observations, crayons or coloured pencils to draw pictures and a camera to make a scrapbook.
