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. 

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.
