Winter Wildlife,  History and Ecological Restoration in the Lower Don Parklands – Junior Naturalists.

The TFN Juniors will gather at the foot of Beechwood Drive on March 18th at 10am for a two hour exploration of the Lower Don Parklands. We will experiment with some storytelling and learn the actual story of the industrial history and recent restoration efforts in this area. Please bring binoculars–cool birds hang out in the Don River, and there are lots of winter songbirds and old nests here too. There is also evidence of over-wintering insects, and we will do some Evergreen tree ID. 

If you are interested please be in touch with Anne Purvis at You will receive an email with meet-up information a week before and get put on a bulk email to receive a reminder email. 

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.
