TFN Juniors Summer Drawing Adventures

Hello Junior Naturalists!

Thanks to everyone who shared photos for this week’s blog. We continue to see interesting things in nature all around us. Please have a look at this week’s slideshow and enjoy the adventures others have been on!

Many creatures look similar, and we are all learning to be more observant of slight differences. Try the ‘Who am I–Cricket or Grasshopper?’ game prepared¬†by Vannessa.¬† Download the file below, then mark your answers with a PDF annotating program, and email your marked-up copy back to us.

Finally sharpen your pencil, and pencil crayons and partake of our ‘Tips for Drawing Nature and Nature Journaling’ from Sandra Iskandar.

Your challenge for this week–towards the very end of July–is to spot or hear grasshoppers and crickets. They are getting easier to see–we already had one from Koreena’s garden.

Have a great week!

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 people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to be on this land.
