|The Ottawa Field-Naturalists' Club
All OFNC activities - the excursions and meetings, the publications, the bird count, the Macoun Club, etc. - depend on the continued existence of a natural environment where the astonishing happenings we call "nature" can continue to happen. The Conservation Committee's job is to be alert to human influences that are damaging to the natural environment and to advise OFNC members and the executive about what actions we can take, both as individuals and collectively.
In addition to local issues, OFNC supports conservation efforts on a broader scale through affiliation with organizations such as Ontario Nature and Canadian Nature Federation.
