Jim Baillie Stewardship Team, Apr 17

The Jim Baillie Stewardship Team will be taking a trip to the reserve on Wednesday, April 17. This trip we’ll be attempting to relocate and map any existing butternuts on the property in support of our newly-announced Butternut Project. No prior specialized knowledge is needed but we will be venturing off-trail so the going may be quite rough in parts. TFN Members interested in participating should RSVP with Team Leader, Charles Bruce-Thompson, via stewardship@torontofieldnaturalists.org as soon as possible. Car pooling available.

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.
