EXHIBITION AND DISPLAYS

Exhibition in Howland Room  What’s up with the Humber River?

Human habitation along the Humber River has greatly impacted its ecology and landscape. Indigenous occupation began 11,000 years ago. While this shaped the landscape, large-scale environmental degradation did not begin until the milling era under British rule. Mills and increasing settlement in the 1800’s caused erosion, deforestation, and pollution. Only with Hurricane Hazel’s deadly flood in 1954 did the Humber River gain some respite. Today the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, in partnership with various municipalities, takes care of the Humber River for us all to enjoy.

If you enjoy the Humber River, visit Lambton House throughout 2019 and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the designation of the Humber as a Canadian heritage river.

Display in Humber Room

Alternatives to Plastic – Help Keep the Humber River Clean.  We have a display of garbage that we dragged from the Humber as well as products that we can use in daily life to avoid the excessive use of plastic, which often is found discarded in the Humber River.

We look forward to seeing you at many of our up-coming events.

Thank-you.
