Hi, I'm Emily.
After earning a BSc in Biology, I moved to Toronto in 2016 to complete a Masters in the History of Science. One of my favourite things to discover in my new home was the beauty of High Park! I started working at the Nature Centre in 2018.
I first learned to love nature journaling in my Biology courses in university, where I made messy sketches of specimens and scribbled down information all over the pages of my lab notebooks! My naturalist knowledge and connection to nature have continued to grow since I began nature journaling in earnest in 2018. Putting a pencil to paper can be scary sometimes, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to be an artist to nature journal! All you need is a drive to continue learning new things and a desire to grow your relationship with the natural world!
