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.

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.
