TFN Juniors Fall 2022 Program

Hello TFN Juniors Members

Looking forward to seeing you all at our fabulous Fall 2022 TFN Juniors events! We will meet monthly, on Saturday morning 10am-12pm. We are not always at the same location but  move around to see what the wildlife is up to and to explore new green spaces in our wonderful city.

Here is the Fall line-up:

  • Sept 10th: Join us for a morning of stream studies with expert Don Scallen, at Highland Creek Park. We will use dipping nets to explore what is in the water, and look for late season butterflies, dragonflies, and migrating songbirds.
  • Oct 15th: Experience the Salmon migration with Indigenous Eco Tour guide, Alan Colley at Colonel Danforth Park. How did Indigenous folks harvest and store salmon? What stories did they tell? Come with your questions.
  • Nov 12th: Meet with us and make a T-shirt using dyes made from Native plants at 1100 Woodbine Ave (an Anglican Church).
  • Dec 3rd: Welcome our Winter Ducks, for whom the open waters of Lake Ontario are the southern point of their migration.

To register for our program, be in touch with Anne at juniortfn@torontofieldnaturalists.org. A week before each event, you will get an invitation email to which you RSVP, if your intention is to attend.  You will then receive a final email with location details, and notes about the weather and what you should bring. 

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