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.

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.
