Do you know a Toronto high school student with a passion for nature and the environment?

TFN is thrilled to offer ten sponsorship grants for Toronto youth to attend the 2017 Ontario Nature Youth Summit for Biodiversity & Environment Leadership! To apply for sponsorship, students should complete the application process by July 28, 2017.

Thanks to substantial bequests generously entrusted to us over the years, the TFN is pleased to support member-driven initiatives just like this that further our mission to help people understand, enjoy, and protect nature in the city.

Please note: TFN Special Projects are not funded by membership fees or general donations, but are only made possible by specifically designated donations and several substantial bequests we have received over the years.
