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 an EcoLeaders program for high school students.

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.

COVID-19 Update

Nature Guelph Continues to offer Online, Virtual Programming
Welcome to our 2021-22 membership season! We had hoped to resume outdoor programs in person this fall but the fourth wave of COVID-19 seems to have interfered with those plans. We will continue to provide our monthly Speaker Series as well as Wildflower and Bird-Wing themed meetings/ presentations virtually via Zoom, but have also continued our suspension of in-person programming. Unfortunately that means our EcoLeaders and Young Naturalists (NATs) youth programs are also on hold.

If we are able to resume any in-person programming we will post it here or on our Facebook page.

2021 Plant Sale Success Helps Grow a Tallgrass Prairie Habitat

The joint Plant Sale with Nature Guelph, Pollination Guelph and the Enabling Garden was a great success, netting about $3,600 for each group. Leftover plants from the sale were donated to the King George School Yard Garden and to the Township of Woolwich Elmira Nature Reserve project.

Nature Guelph was pleased to donate leftover plants to Trees for Woolwich for their Elmira Nature Reserve project, which involves converting 67 acres of old farm fields to forest, savannah, wetland and tallgrass prairie. We look forward to touring the area in a few years.

Thanks to all who donated or purchased plants, and a huge thank you to those who volunteered. Programming for next year will once again be held via Zoom, and we look forward to continuing joint programming with Trees for Woolwich.
