Ottawa Field Naturalists' Club

Town: Ottawa

Ontario Nature Region: Ontario East

The club, incorporated in 1879, is the oldest natural history club in Canada. Our more than 1,000 members enjoy walks, articles and lectures on all aspects of the natural world, from birding to botanizing, field studies to publications, conservation to co-operation. Our objectives are to promote the appreciation, preservation, and conservation of Canada's natural heritage; to encourage investigation and to publish the results of research in all fields of natural history as well as distributing information on these fields as widely as possible; and to support and co-operate with organizations engaged in preserving, maintaining or restoring high-quality environments for living things.

Canadian Field Naturalist, also established in 1879, is an award-winning journal with an international reputation which publishes the results of original research on Canadian natural history. The journal and Trail & Landscape, the club's newsletter, are published four times a year. The club also oversees the Macoun Field Club, a club for juniors jointly sponsored by the Canadian Museum of Nature since 1948.
