The Task Force to Bring Back the Don is looking for new members to join its

  • experience with one or more community organizations

  • a willingness to meet the time and work requirements.
Membership is for a three-year term. Members are expected
  • attend task force and subcommittee meetings (approximately two per month)
  • attend plantings and other community events
  • be active in one of the subcommittees that deal with Lower Don planning and policy issues, habitat restoration and water quality projects, Task Force communications, or the Lower Don Narrows.
Residents who are interested in becoming task force members

Bring Back the Don, Metro Hall, 23rd floor, 55 John St., Toronto, ON, M5V 3C6.
