Notes from our Hike Leader Training Outing

Yesterday proved a perfect time for our Hike Leader Training Outing in Taylor Creek Park – the weather was warm, the trails were busy, and fall flowers were abloom in all directions! The perfect complements to a 5km stroll full of lively discussion. Our most sincere thanks to all of the enthusiastic TFN Members who attended the session. We look forward to the new perspectives, knowledge, and adventures you’ll bring to our walk program!

If you’re interested in attending a future Hike Leader Training session, keep your eyes peeled in the Newsletter for an announcement. The next one will be held in Spring. Attendance is not mandatory! If you want to get started leading walks before then, just look through the Walk Leaders section of our website. Here you’ll find a wealth of information to help you plan, prepare, and lead your walk. If you have any questions, or just want some advice, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us via and ask to chat with one of our experienced walk leaders.

The Toronto Field Naturalists wish to acknowledge this land through which we walk. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississauga of the Credit River. Today it is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to be on this land.
