TFN Juniors Fall Nature Club – Nature Journaling

Hi Junior Naturalists!

Thanks to everyone who shared your nature discoveries for this week’s slide show. Great to see everyone who was able to join us for the 2nd TNF Juniors Fall Nature Class. Have a look at the slide show to see remarkable galls, fungi, and insects. If you find some leaf galls, be sure to keep them in a glass jar and watch the mite, wasp, or fly emerge.

Have a look at the results of our leaf chromatography experiments and discover where the colour of fall leaves comes from.

One of our members sighted a Megarhyssa Female Wasp tapping on a log to find the larva she needed to lay her egg on. Have a look at this stunning video from Nature Documentaries.

Please join us again next week with your pressed leaves, glue, and cardstock, for creating nature collages.

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.
