Toronto Field Naturalists Juniors

The Toronto Field Naturalists Juniors was re-booted three years ago. The young naturalists meet the second Saturday of every month for events in the ravines and parks of Toronto for the purpose of connecting with the wildlife that exists in Toronto green spaces. We have experienced the Monarch migration, the songbird, duck and hawk migrations and met the mining bees and butterflies of our city. We also partner with other groups and naturalists to gain from their expertise. We do nature art, experiments, photography and nature observation. We have also attended several tree and shrub planting events to conserve what we have grown to love. During Covid we switched to on-line and offered two ten-week Zoom nature classes, last spring and this past fall.
We are applying for a grant for the purpose of restoring a piece of land(650 Coxwell/ Todmorden Mills/Taylor Creek). We will use the grant money to purchase shrubs, herbs and soil amendments. I was the recipient of a grant from PollinateTO last year and led a group of people in restoring the gardens at 1100 Woodbine Ave.
