Welcome to Nature Guelph!

In 2016 we celebrated 50 years of nature connection, education, and advocacy!

What adventures will the next 50 years bring? Join us!

Nature Guelph is an active club for nature lovers in the Guelph area. We host monthly meetings with exciting guest speakers, regular outdoor events and field trips in the Guelph area and beyond. We have a special interest group for wildflower-lovers, a Young Naturalists program for kids 6-10 and a Naturalists in Training program for kids 11-16.

Our membership is open to nature lovers of all ages and backgrounds. There’s always room for new members, and visitors are always welcome. Not sure that Nature Guelph is for you? Feel free to join us at any of our meetings or outdoor events, and we’re sure you’ll be hooked!

You may know Nature Guelph by its previous name: the Guelph Field Naturalists.  The name may have changed, but our love of nature has remained the same since our founding in 1966!

Our charitable number is 891557845RR0001 and our governing documents are here: NG Constitution and Bylaws; Land Acquisition and Conservation Restricted Fund.
