Toronto Gone Wild

City Meets Nature

Now Open

Toronto Gone Wild explores the city as a multi-layered habitat — starring the animals, plants, and insects that call Toronto home. 

Venture through different Torontonian terrains from city streets to burrows, hives, and nests, all seamlessly woven together in our downtown exhibition space. You’ll emerge with a renewed appreciation for the interconnectedness of life in the city. 

Why are coyotes such dedicated parents?  What do wasps’ nests and apartment buildings have in common?  When will raccoons become our urban overlords?

See for yourself just how much we share with our animal neighbours in the struggle for food, housing, and community. You may have more in common with that white squirrel at Trinity Bellwoods than you think.


Admission for this exhibition will be free.

Tickets or reservations are not required to attend.
