Free Lecture: The Toronto Islands

TFN will be joined by three speakers in this Free Lecture on the Toronto Islands!

The Unique Nature Of Toronto Islands

Former nuclear engineer, economist, and financial systems analyst, Bob Kortright watched birds since childhood, and learned some ecology from nature trips and reading, but learned most of what he knows about Toronto’s nature after getting involved in TFN as a walk leader and member of the board about 15 years ago. TFN’s Past-President (2010-2012) & Secretary-Treasurer will speak about the unique nature of Toronto Islands, which he has enjoyed all his life, most intensely while conducting the annual butterfly count for many years.

The Toronto Island Master Planning Process

Lori Ellis (Landscape Architect, City of Toronto) and Janette Harvey (Natural Environment Specialist, City of Toronto) will introduce the Toronto Island Master Planning Process, a long-term planning document that is being co-created with Indigenous rights holders, local communities, and the public through a gradual process of many engagement opportunities from 2021 to 2022.

The Toronto Field Naturalists wish to acknowledge this land through which we walk. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississauga of the Credit River. Today it is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to be on this land.
