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 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 the month, from September to November and from March to May.  Our next meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday,  March 25th, in Room 011, Sandiford Lab, of the Bronfman Building, 1001 Sherbrooke St. West, on the downtown campus of McGill University.  Our guest speaker will be Joel Coutu who will give us a presentation on “Birds of the Northern Lights”.

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.  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.
