Birds! Birds! Birds!!
Birds are everywhere, we just need to know how to find them! Let’s practice our bird-watching skills with the TRCA in an interactive, indoor bird safari. We will explore the common birds of Toronto, practice spotting them and become experts on our feathered friends in no time! Through storytelling, Toronto Wildlife Centre will inspire us to learn more about top threats affecting birds and what actions we can take to help. We can also make some bird-themed crafts with Get Crafty to take home.
Toronto Wildlife Centre’s education program promotes peaceful co-existence with wildlife and humane response to wildlife situations by providing education and expert advice about wildlife situations.
Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA)’s mission is to ensure the health of both people and nature. By protecting, restoring and enhancing nature, we allow the natural world to bestow its many benefits on our bodies, our minds, our spirits and our communities. TRCA is one of 36 Conservation Authorities in Ontario. Working with municipalities and other partners to look after the watersheds of the Toronto region and its Lake Ontario waterfront, we help people understand, enjoy and look after the natural environment. At TRCA, community engagement is a critical component of developing a sustainable city region. Emily Rondel is the Toronto Community Engagement Coordinator for the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA). Her background is in bird research and conservation, with a decade of experience studying birds in the field. She is a also passionate bird-watcher; she gets out bird spotting whenever possible and manages Toronto’s bird records and the city’s official checklist for the Toronto Ornithological Club.
