The Peterborough Field Naturalists (PFN) is a registered charity and active club in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. We are currently holding Zoom meetings each month with intriguing topics and speakers. These are members - only events and we send an email out each month with details. Sign up to be a member now, don't miss out!
Each year our hard working volunteers distribute 8 issues of our monthly bulletin to members. The Orchid is full of excellent articles that can help keep you connected to nature in Peterborough.
