Pickering Naturalists

Town: Pickering

Ontario Nature Region: Lake Ontario North

Pickering Naturalists are a group of friendly nature enthusiasts who come together frequently for meetings and outings.

Membership is open to anyone, of any age, with an interest in the natural world – astronomy, botany, birding, geology, nature photography, zoology. Most of our membership is from Ajax/Pickering and Scarborough and the surrounding area, but we have members from farther afield as well.

Meetings are held monthly (September to June) usually on the first Thursday of the month at 7:30 p.m. in O’Brien Room B, near the east entrance of the Pickering Recreation Complex, 1867 Valley Farm Rd., Pickering. Regular meetings include presentations by guest speakers on a wide range of nature and conservation topics. Visitors are welcome.

Outings range from special interest subjects such as birdwatching, butterflies and dragonflies, plant study, fossil-hunting and star-gazing to general nature appreciation. We may visit areas as close as a friend's backyard, or as distant as Algonquin Park.
