New this week: The Toronto Dominion Bank has a “Mobile Forest” that it’s rolling out TODAY, like, RIGHT NOW, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (eastern) on the Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden campus at 1000 Richmond Terr., in the East Lot adjacent to the museum. Visits to the Mobile Forest are free for all visitors.
