Found a tick?

From the team:

Visit us at or download the eTick app to find out more about how to recognize a tick, how to remove it safely after a bite and how to send us a tick picture for quick identification by one of our experts. Our quick identification service is free, and allows you to know if you were bitten by a tick species that may carry the bacteria responsible for Lyme disease. Subsequently, the identified tick will appear as a dot on a virtual distribution map, thereby helping visualize the spread of tick populations in the province. By submitting a tick photo, you are actively participating in the mapping of tick populations in Quebec, as well as monitoring the arrival of new species.

Download the free eTick application to quickly submit pictures of the ticks you encounter!

East End Arts: Toronto Mycelial Network

A collaborative art project created by East End Arts:

An art project to participate in at home
April 1st – August 30th, 2020

Mushrooms can be a great distance apart, but are connected to the same invisible network.

Mushrooms grow invisibly, connected to an unseen latticework just beneath the surface.

Mushrooms grow on the old, process nature and signify times of change.

So, make a mushroom with East End Arts and our family of LASOs: North York Arts, Arts Etobicoke, Lakeshore Arts, Scarborough Arts and Urban Arts! Your mushroom can be made from felt, papier-mache, origami or whatever art supplies you find in your cupboards. While we are all socially distant, let’s make something together to stay connected.

A Message from Outgoing MST President Joanne Hamblin

Dear Members,

I hope you are all safe and keeping well in these times of great uncertainty.

We would have met tonight at our Members meeting, however as you know it was cancelled.

I wanted to let you all know that I have stepped down as President. After almost 7 years on the board and 3 years as President it is time to pass the baton.

I have met so many wonderful people and made so many friends along the way....I will miss you.

Our Vice President Sheila Mazur will take over as acting President and I hope you will give her all the support that you have given me.

The Board of Directors will remain the same and they will continue to carry on with all of our great initiatives once the time comes.

Thank you one and all...🍄

Joanne Hamblin
