TFN Juniors Adventures with Nick at Awenda Park

Hi Junior Naturalists,

Thanks to everybody who contributed photos for this week’s slide show. Cool that we are continuing to see lots of fungi and insects as the fall progresses. Featured in this slide show is one of our TFN Juniors’ leaders, Nick Ypelaar. Nick spent the summer as a park interpreter at Awenda Park and did lots of conservation work. Please enjoy the stunning photos he shared!

If you enjoyed the nature arts that Nick did with folks visiting Awenda Park, consider participating in the Strickland / TFN Nature Club for 10 weeks this fall. We will share nature sightings, do crafts, experiments, and nature journalling.

In the video below, learn about the wonderful work of Ontario biologists to save a species at risk, the Blandings Turtle.

Have a great week and enjoy the nature all around you in gardens, parks and schoolyards.

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