About Us

Nature Newfoundland and Labrador (formerly The Natural History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador) is a non-profit organization with a primary interest in promoting the enjoyment and protection of all wildlife and natural history resources in the Canadian 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 organizations. We are affiliated with Nature Canada (formerly the Canadian Nature Federation).


We host informed and interesting guest speakers as well as outdoor events and workshops. Monthly indoor talks are usually held 7:30 PM on the third Thursday of the month at Memorial University’s Science Building in room SN2067. There are generally no indoor events during the summer but our outdoor events & workshops run year round. Please see our Home PageFacebook (Nature Newfoundland and Labrador) or Twitter @Nature_NL for up-to-date information.


We welcome the participation of both residents and visitors, and encourage all to participate in our programs (families, children, young adults, and senior citizens alike). In addition to activities, lectures, hikes, and outreach, we also publish The Osprey, a quarterly journal dedicated to the natural history of the province. Subscribe here.
