TFN Events Cancelled

Effective March 16, 2020, public health advisories, as well as Federal and Provincial government statements, are asking Canadians to “not leave their homes” except for essentials. This, combined with confirmation of community transmission of the COVID-19 virus in Ontario, has forced TFN to suspend all of our usual community activities.

Until further notice, all TFN lectures & walks have been cancelled. TFN’s participation in other events will be dependent both on that organizing bodies intention to proceed, and our own volunteers interest in participating.

While efforts may be made to announce any changes to this decision via email and social media as appropriate, all changes will be noted in the “For Members” section of our website, found here:

Members may reach out to us via email to, or by phone to 416-593-2656. Please understand that under current circumstances it may take several days for you to receive a response.

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.
