    Humber River: John hits Toronto! 

    The Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) asked me to do a 3 day hands-on workshop.

    Here are some high points:

    • Humber River at high stage, residence were at risk
    • Lots of hihgly motivatesd, really cool TRCA staff
    • There was a BIG hook in the river threatening downstream bridge
    • Access was TIGHT, but we did get to employ a 24 wheel conveyor dump truck for rock delivery
    • We harvested some willow and poplar nearby, the rest we had to source commercially
    • We used Longitudinal Peaked Stone Toe (LPSTP) to align the stream and take out that hook
    • The hook scour hole became a place to plant 'Live Siltation' and Pole Plantings
    • To cap it all off, Jim Berry took me to see my first pro basketball game (front row seating no less) - 'Go Raptors'!
    • Big thanks to Mo McDonnel and all of the TRCA!
