Welcome to the Kingston Field Naturalists

The Kingston Field Naturalists (KFN) is a nature club and charitable organization, active since 1949. Its objectives are the preservation of wildlife and natural habitats, and the stimulation of people’s interest in nature.

PLEASE NOTE that the KFN shall cease all field trips, face-to-face meetings and rambles from now until April 15, at which time the executive will reassess whether or not to extend the ban past April 15.

The Club membership has a diversity of interests in nature and so a variety of activities take place year-round. Bird watching trips, nature rambles, wildflower walks and other field trips are led by knowledgeable individuals from both within and outside the Club. Each May the public is invited to join a series of bird walks.

Monthly meetings are open to both members and the public. They feature guest speakers including naturalists, scientists, conservationists and photographers who speak on a wide range of subjects.

Members regularly participate in hands-on conservation projects such as habitat stewardship and wildlife surveys.
