Volunteer with CFMP

The third year of TFN’s Cottonwood Flats Monitoring Project (CFMP) is gearing up! This wonderful partnership with the City of Toronto’s Urban Forestry, Natural Environment and Community Programs provides exciting opportunities for TFN members to actively engage in citizen science and make positive contributions to nature in the city.

From April to October we’ll conduct two vegetation surveys and six monitoring sessions to help build upon the robust inventory of animal and vegetation biodiversity we’ve documented thus far. Volunteers are needed, with room for the most inexperienced naturalist to the most seasoned botanist!

Role Duties
Site Ambassadors Talk with the public about TFN and CFMP
Photographers Photograph plants & animals, as well as project activities. Must have their own equipment.
Bird ID Identify bird species during monitoring sessions.
PlantID Identify plant & tree species during monitoring sessions and/or vegetation surveys.
Observers Provide extra set of eyes or other assistance to team. A great learning opportunity!

We hope you will choose to participate!Please email cfmp@torontofieldnaturalists.org to let us know that you are interested or for more information.

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.
