Toronto Botanical Garden: City Critters Family Series

By | Press Room | Tags: , , , | January 18, 2013 | No comments

One of the things I love most about Toronto is that you can always find neat places to visit and activities to experience, many of which are both family-friendly and fun. Take, for example, the Toronto Botanical Garden located in Toronto’s Edwards Gardens. Ever since my husband took me there for a leisurely stroll while we were dating, I knew it wouldn’t be the last time.

A few years later, we found ourselves frequenting the gardens often with our firstborn. It was always so beautiful to see the flowers in full bloom and watch my daughter as she squealed over the geese and other animals. Little did I know about all of the educational programs that the TGB provides for families and schools as well. I only just learned last year from a friend that they offered summer camps and how much her son really seemed to enjoy it.

From the Summer Reading Club for Kids to March Break Nature Camp, there seems to be a range of fun and engaging activities for the whole family all year round. Our family was recently invited to join in on the City Critters Family Series full of hands-on, interactive and educational family sessions, which will take place on five different dates throughout the next several months. The first in the series is set for Saturday. I will be tweeting using the hashtag #CityCritters so that you may follow our experience via Twitter.

about the author: Toronto Teacher Mom

By day, Diana is a 34-year-old French teacher, currently teaching grades 1-4. At home, she's a multi-tasking wife and a mother to two darling children, ages 4 and 7. She's still a wife and mother while at work. She's just less inclined to pull out her hair while on the job. Oh, who are we kidding? Teaching hundreds of kids who say, "Madame, I don't know French!" can be cause enough for hair loss. So how does one find a balance between work life and family life? Or rather, can you? What matters most is that you enjoy the little things. That's why Diana started this blog, to record memories of her kids as they grow up and to connect with other moms who may also be experiencing female pattern baldness.
