About Us

Nature Newfoundland and Labrador (NNL; formerly The Natural History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador) is a province-wide organization with a primary interest in promoting the enjoyment and protection of all wildlife and natural history resources in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador and surrounding waters. Nature Newfoundland and Labrador is this province’s oldest conservation organization. It continues to be one of the province’s most active environmental organization. We are affiliated with the Nature Canada (formerly the Canadian Nature Federation).


Nature Newfoundland and Labrador has an Indoor Program of informed and interesting guest speakers as well as an Outdoor and Workshop Program. Monthly indoor meetings are usually held 7:30 PM on the third Thursday of the month at an appropriate venue. There are no indoor meetings during the summer months. The outdoor & workshop program runs year round. See our Home Page or follow us on Facebook for up-to-date information on indoor and outdoor events.


We welcome the participation of all residents and visitors to the province of any age, and encourages all to participate in our programs where they feel comfortable (families, children, young adults, and senior citizens alike). Not all of our outdoor events are suitable for all persons, however we try to offer a balanced program. In addition to the activity programs, we also publish The Osprey, a quarterly journal dedicated to documenting the natural history of the province. Subscribe here.
