Essex County Field Naturalists' Club

Town: Windsor

Ontario Nature Region: Carolinian West

Since 1984, the club has been active promoting the conservation and appreciation of nature in Canada's deep south. Club members meet regularly to discuss local environmental issues and related community projects. Experts in different fields are invited as guest speakers to each meeting, sharing and teaching our membership about the opportunities to enjoy, conserve and protect our natural heritage. Members also receive out newsletter, The Egret, four times a year.

We have a number of active committees, including the Eastern Bluebird Committee which monitors eastern bluebird nesting boxes; the Natural Habitat Restoration Program (NHRP) through which we collect, process and distribute native shrub and tree seeds for sale and propagation; and the Heritage Fund Committee which works actively to pursue opportunities for the preservation of natural areas in Essex County. The Nature Conservancy of Canada and the Essex County Field Naturalists' Club have worked together the acquire and protect a 24-hectare property on Pelee Island as a nature reserve. This property is part of a natural area known as the Stone Road Alvar Complex, which is noted for its diversity of plant and animal species as well as a number of provincially and nationally rare plant and animal species.
