Who we are


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 which depends solely on the support and participation of its members.  We offer a program of outdoor activities, usually on Saturdays and mainly aimed at people over the age of 40,  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 Thursday of the month from March to May and from September to November  in Fulford Hall of the Montreal Diocese of the Anglican Church of Canada, 2nd Floor, 1444 Union Avenue (across from The Bay).

Our next meeting will be held on Thurs., Nov. 30th, when our programme co-chair, Audrey Speck, will give a power point presentation entitled “Into the Northwest Passage”.  Audrey travelled to the Arctic in August/September of this year.

Non-members are welcome at any of our activities.  They are invited to participate in one or two of the outings or lectures before deciding to become a member.  For details about any of our activities, please check the “Program” tab.  For further information, you may call or email the President – Pat Borlace (514) 769-1542, p.borlace@yahoo.ca, or the Membership Chairperson – Vera Burt, (514) 769-4480, VeraBurt@gmail.com.  You may also visit us on Facebook  –  Montreal Field Naturalists’ Club.
