TFN Juniors Spring 2021 Nature Class #8

Hello everyone,

Thanks to everyone who joined us Wednesday and contributed to our sharing time and also drawing the Black Crowned Night heron with Sandra Iskandar.  Wow we continue to have some amazing sightings, and it is very special to be able to join you on these nature investigations. Please have a look at the slideshow below.

Also finish your drawings of the Black Crowned Night Heron–and be sure to send photos of your drawing to be included in the next slideshow. 

This coming week, we have a special guest–Nick Ypelaar. Nick is a Park Naturalist at Awenda Provincial Park and helped to plan our earlier in-person programs. He will be sharing with us about dragonflies and has some cool activities for us. Please come 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.
