This time of the year Atlantic salmon returns to Humber River to spawn. For that it needs to jump over all the dams first! Watching this is fascinating. Taking pictures of it from afar is challenging.

In order to participate in this event, you must have a camera. When you sign up for the event, please tell me what kind of camera you have in the Notes section. No note = no sign-up.

We're going to meet at Old Mill subway station exit. From there, we'll walk around 3km towards Old Mill dams. The total distance of this walk will be somewhere around 7km. We will end the event back at Old Mill subway station.
