TFN hosts more than 140 walks each year, led by knowledgeable volunteers who enjoy sharing their passion for nature. On behalf of our entire organization, many thanks to all our Walk Leaders – your efforts and dedication are greatly appreciated!
Preparing to lead a walk?
- Print out the Walk Leader Checklist and bring it on your walk to remind you of what is expected from a leader.
- Review our Walk Leaders Guide which includes how to prepare and ways of handling challenging situations.
- Review the Naturalists’ Code of Ethics to help ensure a low-impact outing.
Have you just led a walk?
- Please submit a Walk Leader’s Report to the TFN office within a week of your walk.
- Submit some interesting photos to the newsletter or TFN Archives by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org!
- Share your walk photos on social media with the hashtag #Torontofieldnaturalists so that we can all live vicariously through your lens! Remember to set the photos to “Public” unless you only want people in your friends / followers list to see them.
