South Peel Naturalists' Club

Town: Mississauga/Oakville

Ontario Nature Region: Carolinian East

Keeping an eye on nature.

Founded in 1952, South Peel Naturalists’ Club is a volunteer, non-profit organization operating in the Cities of Mississauga and Oakville. Our mission is to encourage the enjoyment and study of nature; to promote the preservation and conservation of our flora and fauna, land and water; and, to foster awareness and education of our natural surroundings.

Monthly indoor meetings, held September through April (except December), feature presentations by guest speakers whose topics range from appreciation of flora and fauna to contemporary conservation issues. The outdoor program consists of a series of day-long field trips designed to introduce participants to the flora, fauna and natural areas in the region and farther afield. During the summer months, weekly evening walks to locations in Halton and Peel explore the flora in a variety of habitats. The club’s newsletter, published five times per year, informs members of club activities and local issues as well as providing interesting bird and nature observations.

A commitment to protecting the natural environment in Halton and Peel, the Club takes an active interest in local natural areas, including Rattray Marsh, Bronte Creek Provincial Park and the Creditview Wetland. Particular attention is paid to the planning processes in Oakville and Mississauga.
