A wonderful afternoon at our annual Nature Images Show – thanks to all of the TFNers who came out, especially those who shared their work! From saw-whets by the Don to the eating patterns of monarch caterpillars, it was awesome to reconnect with nature on an end-of-winter’s day, and with each other! Congrats (and thanks) to those who won our silent auction prizes: limited-edition prints by Nels Maher and Lynn Pady, and signed copies of “Fauna, Photographs” by Theresa Moore and “Toronto’s Ravines and Urban Forests” by Jason Ramsay-Brown.
Toronto Field Naturalists wishes to acknowledge this Land through which we walk. For thousands of years, the Land has been shared by the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe. Toronto is situated on the Land within the Toronto Purchase, Treaty 13, the traditional and treaty Lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is also part of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum, a covenant agreement between Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Wendat peoples and allied nations to peaceably share the land and all its resources. Today, the Land is home to peoples of numerous nations. We are all grateful to have the opportunity to continue to care for and share the beauty of this Land.
