Join Nature Vancouver

Members of Nature Vancouver have access to a knowledgeable and enthusiastic network of naturalists, birders, geologists, and outdoor enthusiasts. Birding, Botany, Marine Biology, and Geology sections of Nature Vancouver offer nature walks and field trips all year round, and organize evening presentations every Thursday from January to May, and September to November.

An annual week-long summer camp is organized in different parts of BC, usually in alpine wilderness but also to some drive-in locations.

The Conservation Section undertakes nature conservation initiatives in Metro Vancouver.

We publish Discovery, an annual journal of natural history. Members also receive a weekly newsletter by email.

Nature Vancouver is part of BC Nature (the Federation of BC Naturalists) and all members receive their quarterly magazine, BCnature, and a monthly e-newsletter.

BC Nature also provides a third-party liability insurance for members who participate in field trips organized by Nature Vancouver, BC Nature or other member clubs as part of our membership.

Non-members may participate in up to three field trips before they are required to take out a membership. Out of town visitors are always welcome to take part in any of our activities. All participants in outdoor activities have to sign a Release of Liability statement.
