Junior Naturalists – Winter Ducks event

The open waters of Lake Ontario and the Toronto shoreline  are a ‘vacation destination’ for many of our Boreal and Arctic nesting waterfowl. We get to see ducks in winter that aren’t here at other times of the year!

Come join us at Colonel Sam Smith Park from 10:00 am till 12:00 pm on Saturday, December 3rd to welcome our ducks to their winter home! We will play a couple of games to help us ID our ducks, and understand the hazards our birds face navigating dangerous landscapes during migration. 

Then we will head down to the shore to see who has arrived.

Please pre-register for this event by contacting Anne Purvis(kannepurvis@gmail.com). You will receive an email prior to the event with further details.

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.
