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.

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.
