Special 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 and management of the Helen Quilliam Sanctuary and Martin Edwards Nature Reserve; 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. We also initiate special projects to meet specific needs, and encourage members to participate in environmental projects initiated by federal, provincial or other agencies.

Below is a list of projects which the KFN, or its individual members, have undertaken, or in which we expect to be involved in the future.
