Upcoming Field Trips and Rambles
Open to club members only                      Upcoming Public Events


Contact the trip leader or consult your newsletter for trip details such as meeting time and location.

The KFN Executive strongly encourages carpooling for all Rambles & Fieldtrips. Please pay a fair share of the driving expenses to your driver. If you are not sure how much is fair, ask your driver how much he thinks the trip cost him. An example: Three people share a car from Kingston to Prince Edward Point. Each person might contribute $10.

Important note: Please be aware that ticks carrying Lyme disease have been found in the Kingston region, in places including Lemoine Point, Prince Edward County, Amherst Island, St. Lawrence Islands National Park and the Frontenac Arch. If you take part in field trips in these areas, or visit them on your own, we strongly recommend that you take precautions against tick bites. Please read this information on Lyme disease, adapted from a brochure from the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care.
