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.
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 normally 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. For the moment we are unable to hold live meetings due to health restrictions.
Please Note: The provincial stay-at-home order precludes us from running any field trips, rambles or other group activities. Some events will be rescheduled for after May 20th – check the Events page for updates.
Members regularly participate in hands-on conservation projects such as habitat stewardship and wildlife surveys.
