TFN Junior Naturalists continue this Fall

Hello Junior Naturalist Friends,

What an exciting week you all had in Toronto, Uxbridge, the Grand River and Algonquin Park!! We continued to experience our fellow creatures–on lakes, in forests, and around our homes. Thanks for sharing your photos so  we can enjoy them together. 

Our parks and Greenbelt protected countryside are special places where motorized vehicles like boats are not allowed. This permits wildlife to flourish. Interesting how many of us experienced creatures pretending to be something else, or blending into their environment–using camouflage. Please have a look at the slideshow of your photos:

Can you guess what this photo is and where it was taken?  Send your ideas to Anne and we will post all your answers next week.

This video gives a fuller explanation of the Peppered moth story and its contribution to understanding ‘evolution’.  

Have a great week and watch for an email with details about our fall program!  Also, if you did an interesting nature craft, or drawing or you wrote an imaginative nature story or poem–send it to us. If you made a video of yourself reading  something you wrote, we will post that. 

Anne, Vannessa, Monica, and Nick

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.
