In 1970, six natural history clubs joined together to form the Federation of Alberta Naturalists. Today, this same organization, now known as Nature Alberta serves a membership of over 40 clubs and represents thousands of individuals across the province. These individuals share a passion for natural history.
Natural history is the study of plants or animals, using observational rather than experimental methods.
Alberta is fortunate to have a wide diversity of wildlife and wild spaces. All native plants and animals have a right to co-exist with Albertans, who in turn benefit by having access to a healthy, natural environment. Increasing our understanding of nature will lead to increased enjoyment of it.
