TFN Juniors in Early Winter–abandoned nests, crayfish and first Snowflakes !

Thanks to everyone who joined our ten week nature class this fall and contributed photos, drawings and your presence at our weekly get-together. See some final contributions in this week’s slideshow and learn about the science of snow.

Learning to draw and developing the skills for nature journaling has been a big part of our time together. Sandra has contributed the following slideshows. The shapes that she has picked out in the Mink, the Mink face, the Red-breasted Merganser and Long-tailed Duck allow us to section the page and draw with more proportion and accuracy. Check out the slideshows below.

Our Fall Nature class is over as of this week. However, watch for blogposts once a month. We will resume in-person hikes as soon as Covid permits, and would like to launch another 10-week Zoom Nature Class in Spring 2021.

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.
