About Nature Guelph
Nature Guelph hosts monthly meetings, open to the public, which feature guest speakers on a wide range of natural history topics. We conduct field trips with knowledgeable leaders to explore and learn about various natural phenomena in our local area. Our "Bird Wing" group visits different outdoor locations twice a month for birdwatching. We offer both a Young Naturalists Program for kids aged 6 to 12, and a Naturalists in Training Program for teens aged 13 to 16 years old. Members also participate on committees of the local governments, dealing with city planning and development, habitat maintenance and restoration, water and wetland conservation, transportation issues, and environmental concerns. Our bi-monthly newsletter keeps members informed of upcoming activities.
