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 ebird.org and inaturalist.org 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.

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 people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to be on this land.
