KFN Projects

There are many ways in which the KFN strives to achieve its objectives: through our general meetings, with speakers on a wide range of subjects; numerous field trips and rambles; ambitious programs for juniors and teens; acquisition of the Helen Quilliam Sanctuary and Amherst Island nature reserves; environmental action and active support of conservation efforts; publication of the KFN Newsletter and our quarterly journal, the Blue Bill; and the maintenance and reporting of bird records. Perhaps the major method of implementing our plans to attain those objectives is through the initiation of KFN projects or by encouraging members to participate in environmental projects initiated by federal, provincial or other agencies.

The KFN is a very active club, with something to offer everyone and even challenge its most enthusiastic members. This should be evident in the following summary of projects which the KFN, or its individual members, have undertaken, or in which we expect to be involved in the future.
