Each year TFN offers its members eight free Zoom talks by noted experts, exploring everything from nature in the city to global environmental issues. Recent lectures have included New Discoveries in Bird Migration (Dr. Bridget Stutchbury), The Secret Lives and Superpowers of Spiders (Catherine Scott), Toronto’s Water, Energy and Waste Systems (Mariko Uda), and Salamander-Eating Pitcher Plants (Patrick Moldowan).
Talks are presented Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm, from September to May with audience discussion time. Visitors are always welcome and no admission fee is charged. Members can also access Zoom links for upcoming talks on the “For Members” web page, where recordings of past lectures are also available.
