About Us


The Vancouver Natural History Society (Nature Vancouver) was founded in 1918 by Professor John Davidson with the following objectives:

  • To promote the enjoyment of nature
  • To foster public interest and education in the appreciation and study of nature. 
  • To encourage the wise use and conservation of our natural resources 
  • To work for the complete protection of endangered species and ecosystems.
  • To promote access to, and maintenance of, natural areas in the vicinity of Vancouver.

We host public meetings nearly every Thursday evening, each with a lecture, snacks and socializing.  We host frequent field trips to get out and learn more about nature in our local area.  We also hold an annual summer camp, which is a great way to experience BC nature at its finest.

Nature Vancouver is a not-for-profit charitable society registered under the BC Societies Act. Membership in the Society is open to all. The Society is a Federated Club of BC Nature.
