Membership matters!

Founded in 1879, the OFNC is Canada's oldest natural history club with great influence in promoting environmental and conservation issues in the Ottawa region. Your support enables us to...

  • Garden — The Fletcher Wildlife Garden helps Ottawa gardeners develop wildlife friendly habitats in their backyards.
  • Conserve — We are quick to make our voice heard and apply pressure when habitats are being threatened. Our membership numbers carry a lot of weight - just being a member helps.
  • Research — The highly respected Canadian Field-Naturalist is devoted to publishing peer-reviewed papers by leading scientists in the natural history field.

Volunteer opportunities

  • Committees — Awards, Birds, Conservation, Education & Publicity, Excursions & Lectures, Finance, Macoun Field Club, Membership, Publications, Fletcher Wildlife Garden.
  • Other activities — Mailing, proofreading, helping with displays or social events, leading walks or giving talks for members and the public.

Memberships include monthly lectures, field trips, a subscription to Trail & Landscape (the club's quarterly print magazine) and free on-line access to the electronic Canadian Field-Naturalist (a scientific journal, access requires an email address).
