Fellow TFN member, Rachel Gottesman, will be on site to answer questions by the conservation committee display on Saturday from 3-5 pm and on Sunday from 11 am – 1 pm.

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.
