This isn't our publication, but is part of the City of Toronto Biodiversity Booklet Series. A number of TEA members were part of the writing team. This 68-page full-colour booklet was released in 2011, but is now out print. It is unlikely to be reprinted, but it may appear on the City of Toronto's website as a downloadable pdf. Stocks may still be available for free distribution in some City of Toronto libraries -- North York Central would be the most likely possibility.
