The Ottawa Field Naturalists’ Club is a volunteer, non-profit organization. The club’s operations are overseen by a board made up of elected members and the chairs of the various committees. The board meets once a month. Individual activities are undertaken by club members participating in committees. Every year, the activities of the committees are summarized in an annual report.

The annual reports are found here.
