In the early 1930s the TFN formed the Junior Field Naturalists' Club, a popular initiative that spent decades connecting Toronto's children with nature. Overnight trips, adventures in the halls of the ROM, lectures, nature walks, and a variety of other events and gatherings brought knowledgeable naturalists and youth together to help inspire a lifetime love for our natural world. Robert Bateman, one of Canada's most well-known painters, was a member in the 1940s and later became an instructor. Of the club he once said "it helped to form my heart and mind and soul," an inspiring testimony to its impact. The TFN Junior Naturalists Online Program is a rebirth of this important legacy, retooled for the 21st century.
TFN members enjoy many benefits: over 100 guided nature walks each year, 8 issues of our informative newsletter, citizen science and stewardship opportunities, lectures by noted experts, and so much more.

Memberships start at only $10! Learn more on our membership page.
