The Peterborough Field Naturalists (PFN) is a registered charity and active club in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. Monthly meetings are held from September to June with interesting topics and speakers. Pre-registration is required for in-person or zoom attendance through Eventbrite.
Each year our hard working volunteers distribute 9 issues of our monthly bulletin to members. The Orchid is full of excellent articles that can help keep you connected to nature in Peterborough.
Outings are held throughout the year and are open to everyone. Pre-registration is required and details sent to those who register. Topics include birding, wildflowers, ferns, tracking, lichens, reptiles and amphibians.
We offer events geared towards kids aged 5-12. Events are led by PFN members and individuals from Peterborough community organizations. Come out and try an event to see if you'd like to join!
