Celebrating Cottonwood Flats

When the 100th anniversary committee was brainstorming ideas on how to celebrate our centennial, Jason Ramsay-Brown (Stewardship Committee lead and a past president of TFN) suggested we create a video about Cottonwood Flats. The video would cover the history of the location and our work in partnership with the city. Thankfully a volunteer, Jessica Nelson, stepped up to the challenge of creating a video to celebrate our work in the area and our relationship with the City of Toronto’s Natural Environment and Community Programs (NECP) section of Urban Forestry.

We are very happy to share this video with you now. Here is a link to the video: https://youtu.be/Sxj9abbXTdI

Thanks to Jessica Nelson for the work and effort she put into creating this great video.

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.
