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.

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