In 1992 Nature Alberta self-published and distributed the Atlas of Breeding Birds of Alberta. The experience gained from this project has led to our involvement in a number of other titles. For our current publications please visit our Book Store. Since 1992, Nature Alberta has collaborated with member clubs, government agencies and individuals to produce Alberta relevant natural history titles. Nature Alberta has been received both the Emerald Award and the Premier’s Award of Excellence for three of its publications. We continue to have an interest in finding publishing projects that contribute to knowledge of natural history in the province. If you have a publishing idea, please Contact Us to discuss.
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.
