About KINGSTON FIELD NATURALISTS
The Kingston Field Naturalists owns and maintains a nature sanctuary near Kingston and a nature reserve on Amherst Island which protect breeding/migration habitat. We monitor wildlife reserves for the Nature Conservancy of Canada and other environmental organizations. We operate a natural history education program for up to 100 children and teens. We run projects to aid survival of endangered species such as swifts, shrikes, and falcons. We meet monthly from September to May and conduct field trips, rambles, and nature walks all year. We maintain and publish extensive bird records in a quarterly journal. Our conservation committee actively carries out conservation efforts of our own and we support those of other organizations. Issues such as parks creation, wildlife habitat protection, public environmental policy, and environmental welfare are of ongoing concern to the KFN.
