Nature changes over time. Photographer members of the Toronto Field Naturalists (TFN) have been documenting these changes since the 1950s. In celebration of its 100th anniversary as a volunteer-run charity devoted to the conservation of Toronto’s natural areas, TFN presents historic photos curated from its archives paired with images taken in 2023 in the same locales by TFN’s current photographers. The exhibit documents the expansion of the wild, the spread of urban development, and the positive results of the City’s and public’s conservation efforts over eight decades.
The photo exhibition will run from October 2nd to 6th in the City Hall Rotunda. The exhibit will be open to the public from 9 am to 5 pm during the week. The exhibit is part of the our 100th anniversary celebrations and is a feature event of the City of Toronto’s Ravine Days.
