TFN Juniors Spring 2021 Nature Class #7

Hello Everyone, 

Thanks for wonderful photos from Greenwood Conservation area, and Tommy Thompson Park. So many different creatures we had the fun of seeing–birds nesting, mink scavenging for food, American Toads calling. Really enjoy sharing in everyone’s adventures and getting ideas of places to visit. Thanks for looking after the wild places close to your homes–picking up garbage, and keeping track of who is living there!!

This time of year during the songbird migration we are so aware of how much our birds depend on native plants for fruits and berries, but also for the insects that use their nectar and pollen.¬† We have a local expert who can guide us in choosing the right plants for our yards — Lorraine Johnson.

Hope you have a wonderful nature-filled Victoria Day weekend. Please join us next week with paper and pencil for a drawing time with Sandra. Sandra is a wonderful teacher and can help us no matter how much experience we have with drawing. Come along and feel free to bring a friend.

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.
