Until November 16th, the Province of Ontario wants to hear your opinion on a provincial response to Climate Change. “Later this fall, Ontario will release a plan that will identify specific areas of focus to help us tackle and be more resilient to climate change … This made-in-Ontario solution will strike the right balance between protecting our environment and responsibly supporting a prosperous economy.” You can help the Ontario Government understand what the “right balance” looks like by submitting your thoughts.
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.
