A place to connect to nature through curiosity Join HPNC hosts Jessie and Jenny for our weekly online, intergenerational “cafe” for nature enthusiasts to connect and get curious about what is happening outside in nature right now. This week our special guests are the High Park Nature Centre Rangers. The Rangers are a community of youth (12 – 16) who usually meet in High Park to learn about nature and perform meaningful stewardship work together. These days they’ve been meeting online and finding new ways of supporting nature from a distance - such as hosting an educational game of nature trivia for us! There will be opportunities to step away from the screen, to experience nature in the moment, and maybe even draw! Curious?! Whether you have a window, a balcony or a yard, whether you’re staying inside or leaving your home, we’ll share pathways for deepening our connections to nature during this time of physical distancing. This event is free, but we are gratefully accepting sliding scale donations. Click here to read the Nature Cafe FAQ

This week our special guests are Vicky An and Rachel Stewart from Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, who will share their knowledge about the wonders of monarch butterflies and the importance of milkweed. We’ll be talking about their incredible transformations from egg to butterfly, their magnificent migration, and ways that we can support their journeys.
