Strickland/ TFN Junior Naturalists – Week 9

Thanks to everyone who attended the Strickland/TFN Zoom Nature class today. Our challenge was to find tracks and traces of Mammals all around us. We found so many!  

Thanks for photos, drawings and stories. At the bottom of this post is a slideshow of all the kids’ contributions. Also find at the end of the slide show explanations of how and work. These are excellent tools for identifying species you have seen and also keeping a personal life list of everything you have seen, and where.

Toronto Wildlife is a wonderful site where Ken Sproule’s photos have found a home. They are well organized and easy to search. It is also a site, where you can spend lots of time just studying creatures you are interested in, and catching the detail you might have missed in the field.

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.
