Nature Alberta was formed in 1970 when the leaders of six local natural history clubs joined together to create a provincial federation of naturalists – Nature Alberta (formerly known as the Federation of Alberta Naturalists). We are grateful to those original six for their wisdom and insight which brought nature clubs from across the province together under one common umbrella.
Today we are proud to call nearly 40 naturalist clubs our members. And individuals from the various clubs in turn serve Nature Alberta in many ways: as Board members on the Nature Alberta Board of Directors, as committee members on various ad hoc committees, as volunteers at various Nature Alberta fundraisers, as participants in Nature Alberta events and programs, and much more.
Peruse the Nature Alberta Club Directory and take some time to get to know our member clubs and what they do in their respective communities.
