Storytime in the Garden: The Boreal Forest with Lindsey Carmichael

Our friends at the Toronto Botanical Garden will be hosting a family-friendly (ages 6 and up) Zoom Webinar with Lindsey Carmichael, author of more than 20 STEM books for children and young adults!

Join this award-winning children’s author as she leads your family in an exploration of the boreal forest – the largest, most northern forest in the world…with 29 per cent of it is right here in Canada! This introduction to the boreal biome will help kids understand why forests matter. Lindsey will explore biodiversity with a look at the animals – both iconic and obscure – who call the boreal forest home. She will also get you up and moving as she demonstrated how photosynthesis helps forests prevent climate change. This program runs approximately 30 minutes, leaving plenty of time to answer questions. Attendees will also receive a free printable pdf with instructions for an at-home forest filtration experiment.

Saturday, April 24, 10 to 11 a.m.
Family-friendly. Suitable for ages 6 and up

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.
