Haliburton Highlands Field Naturalists

Town: Haliburton

Ontario Nature Region: Huronia

Haliburton Highlands is a Natural Work of Art. The rich diversity of flora and fauna in Haliburton County provides an ideal setting for naturalist activities. Since its beginning in 1992, the HHFN has held informative gatherings and outdoor activities throughout the year. Club members and guests from the general public learn about nature, discuss topics concerning the environment, and view slide presentations, with featured speakers from outside the area and within our midst.

HHFN has been involved with Snowdon Park, a wetland and forest preserve within the Township of Minden Hills, since 1995. Named in memory of one of our young members, the Brenda Ann Chambers Trail System skirts marshes, thicket swamps and a large fen complex as it weaves through forested wetlands. The trail has a viewing platform and boardwalks, and a map is available at the trailhead kiosk. In 2002, the Haliburton Highlands Field Naturalists implemented the Junior Naturalists' popular summer program for children. We have a large proportion of members from the fields of science and education, as well as a number of people who simply enjoy the outdoors and want to learn more about nature. Our outings include cross-country skiing, birding, snowshoeing, hiking, and plant identification treks through interesting natural areas.
