The OFNC provides many opportunities to give practical support to nature and natural history.

We have active birding programs, a youth club, a naturalized garden, a peer-reviewed scientific journal, educational materials, a club news bulletin, field trips, and a public lecture program. They can all use your help.

OFNC activities are carried out by committees of volunteers. Join a committee and help run the Club. Some committees are responsible for program areas, such as Birds, Conservation, Fletcher Wildlife Garden, Macoun Field Club and Publications. Other committees deal with organizational and administrative matters – Awards, Education & Publicity, Events, Finance, and Membership.

In particular…

  • Safe Wings Ottawa needs volunteers to monitor buildings during spring and fall migration, to transport injured birds, and to help with other tasks. For more information, see (posted Nov. 2017)
  • The Education and Publicity Committee is looking for several members to help with creating educational materials, promoting the club at nature events, writing public service announcements, and/or presenting wildlife talks to various groups. Contact the chair, Gordon Robertson at education [at], if you are interested or want more information. (reposted Apr. 2019)
