Task Force to Bring Back the Don extends membership deadline
The Task Force to Bring Back the Don has extended its deadline to Friday, April

Sponsored by the City of Toronto, the Task Force has worked for 15 years to
make the Don River clean, green and accessible. It has built wetlands, planted
thousands of trees and wildflowers, lobbied for access bridges and improved
trail links, participated in key planning decisions in the Don watershed (from
the moraine to the lake), and hosted walks and educational events.

  • experience with one or more community organizations;

Membership is for a three-year term. Members are expected to: 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 Don River planning and policy issues and habitat restoration projects, and co-ordinating Task Force communications, including a newsletter, a Web site and other publications and media material, as required.
