TFN and COVID-19

Over the last several days, public health advisories have begun to advocate for aggressive social distancing, in an effort to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. In response, Toronto schools are prolonging March Break, major and minor league sports seasons have been suspended, and many public events are being rescheduled.

Toronto Field Naturalists takes the health and welfare of our community very seriously. We will continue to monitor public health advisories and recommend that people interested in attending any of our scheduled events (walks, lectures, stewardship & citizen science sessions, public events, etc.) visit our website before they head out. While efforts may be made to announce any cancellations via email and social media as appropriate, all cancellations will be noted in the “For Members” section of our website, found here:

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.
