TFN Junior Naturalists Adventures with Fungi

Thanks to everyone who shared their observations with us this week. Hope you are having fun walks to school, recesses and outdoor time after school!! Nature is with us, in our streets and in our schoolyards!

Please have a look at this slideshow of our observations. Also, at the end of the slideshow, we have shown you a way to use the program iNaturalist, even if you don’t open an account to post your own photos. It is still super helpful for identifying creatures you have seen or photographed.

Try this maze made by Vannessa–a fun little reminder that fall is upon us!!

(if you need to see the solution, we have included it at the bottom of this post)

Finally, have a look at this video which explains so clearly how fungi and green plants help each other.

Have a great week everyone, and enjoy the fall.

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.
