Current Opportunities: 

The busy fall field season is upon us! Would you like to spend some time in nature and help us steward our properties? Read on! There are a variety of events and ways to get involved. Some events are weather dependent so please RSVP to daria.koscinski@ttlt.ca for each event you plan to attend. See you soon!

 

September 15, 16, 22, and 23 at Hawk Cliff Woods
Hawk Cliff Weekends! For those of you who haven't been before, it's one of our signature events, hosted in partnership with the St Thomas Field Nats, Hawk Cliff Raptor Banders, and volunteers from Monarch Watch. The partner organizations run twice daily Hawk Talks and Monarch Butterfly talks. The Raptor Banders usually bring over Peregrine Falcons, Sharp-shinned Hawks, and other birds from the nearby banding station and release them during the talks - really cool if you haven't seen it before.

This year we'll also be doing garden tours/seed collection on both Saturdays with the official opening of the Auzins Community Wildflower Garden on the 22nd. On both Sundays, Sciensational Snakes will be doing their snake presentations.
Once again this year we're looking for volunteers to help out with set up and clean up, the TTLT booth, and directing parking. I've created a sign-up page where you can sign up for particular tasks and shifts, available here: http://signup.com/go/WHpKfgE

If you are willing to help please let us know!
