A CLUB TO CELEBRATE AND ENJOY NATURE AND THE ENVIRONMENT!
A wide range of field trips and lectures, with the aim of enriching its members’ enjoyment and study of nature, is offered by the MONTREAL FIELD NATURALISTS’ CLUB.
A non-profit organization, founded in 1971 and depending solely on the support and participation of its members, we offer a program of outdoor activities, usually on Saturdays, featuring easy to intermediate hikes and walks, as well as canoeing or kayaking. Winter outings include cross-country skiing and/or snowshoeing. There is also a summer program of weekday outings and several week-end trips a year for canoeing, hiking or skiing.
Our indoor lecture series includes talks on a variety of nature-related topics by scientists and natural history experts as well as by club members who have travelled to interesting places around the world. These free, public indoor lectures take place on the last Wednesday of each month, from September through May (except December). The next meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. on May 29th in Room 232 of the Leacock Building, 855 Sherbrooke St. West, on the downtown campus of McGill University. Our annual general meeting will be followed by a short slide presentation on recent Fieldnats’ events and will close with a wine & cheese to end off the year.
Non-members are welcome at any of our activities and are invited to participate in one or two of the outings or lectures before deciding to become a member.
