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!

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.
