The Ottawa Field-Naturalists’ Club, founded in 1863 and incorporated in 1879,  is the oldest natural history club in Canada. Over 800 members participate in many aspects of the natural world, from birding to botanizing, investigation to publication, conservation to cooperation. We hope you will find something here to suit your interests.
