TFN Sponsorship of 2018 Youth Summit

It was with great pleasure that, back in September, TFN sponsored 5 of the 106 youth who attended Ontario Nature’s 2018 Youth Summit for Biodiversity & Environmental Leadership. Over that weekend, attendees participated in a wealth of activities and workshops, exploring everything from freshwater ecology to affecting political change.

Our sponsorship touched the lives of a few promising students who will, in turn, touch the lives of others. To learn more, please check out the summary report provided to TFN by Ontario Nature, which includes personal letters from the students we sponsored describing the impact the weekend had on them.

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.
