Niagara Falls Nature Club

Town: Niagara Falls

Ontario Nature Region: Carolinian East

The club is composed of individuals dedicated to enjoying, preserving and protecting the natural habitat of Niagara. Its main activities consist of monthly indoor lectures, field outings, local conservation projects and social events. Since its founding in 1966, the NFNC has been a strong advocate for the environment in Niagara.

To better "promote understanding of Niagara's natural heritage" the club runs regular field outings throughout the year within Niagara and beyond. In the summer season, "Wednesday Evening Walks" (May to September) take participants to a different location of natural interest within the Peninsula each week. From September to May, indoor presentations covering a wide variety of natural history topics take place on the third Wednesday of each month at the main branch of the Niagara Falls Public Library (Victoria Avenue). On matters of local environmental concern, the club has a long history of cooperative partnerships with local agencies that include consultations, natural inventories, land stewardship and restoration projects. Examples include the Baden Powell Park naturalization project and the Niagara Region Environmental Advisory Committee. Club members have also assisted with bird banding at Rock Point Provincial Park and with the Niagara Conservation Authority's three-year natural areas inventory.
