Upper Credit Field Naturalists Club

The Upper Credit Field Naturalists Club is made up of people who share a common interest in the natural environment: enjoying it, preserving it, and learning more about it, in all of its incredible complexity and beauty.

We organize a variety of activities throughout the year, including the ever-popular Spring and Christmas bird counts, wildflower walks and other field trips.

The Club was founded in 1986 and is managed by an Executive Committee that is elected by the membership each year.

The regular monthly meetings include top-notch speakers are brought in to inform and delight all who attend. The meetings are open to the public at no charge. Anyone who shares our interest in all things natural is welcome to take out a membership.

    Hello Ron, I work at Wild Birds Unlimited in Guelph. The reason I am writing you is some of your members have been to the store to purchase binoculars and spotting scopes. I have a list of binoculars that we have on sale and I thought you could mention it to your members if anyone is looking for bincoulars. If you would like me to forward the list to you please let me know.

    Hello, I don’t see any other “contact us” section, so leaving this note here.

    My name is Stacey and I am the communications coordinator for the Ontario BioBlitz program. Thank you so much for promoting registration for our flagship event in the Credit Watershed this year!

    We have a public nature festival component to the program, which will be a series of activities and programs related to nature and the environment, as well as 20-30 local environmental groups and organizations represented, using info booths and activities to engage the public in the work they do, and provide some insight into how they can become more involved.

    Would you or someone else from the Upper Credit Field Naturalists Club be interested in having a booth at the event? It is on Saturday June 11th from 11am-5pm at our event’s base camp, Riverwood Park.

    Additionally, if your skilled members would like to participate in our scientific survey as naturalists, registration is still open: http://www.ontariobioblitz.ca/scientist-registration.html

    Please let us know if you are interested,

    Thank you,

    ~Stacey and the Ontario BioBlitz team
