Fossil Hike along Manuels River

Fossil Hike along Manuels River

Nature NL strives to foster awareness, understanding and appreciation of our natural surroundings. We hold monthly outings and public seminars to explore our environment. Monthly presentations on interesting nature topics are usually held 7:30 PM on the 3rd Thursday of the month at Memorial University (or occasionally at The Rooms).  Our members actively engage in conservation efforts through shoreline clean ups and citizen science programs. We also share our knowledge through outdoor education and outreach programs and naturalist workshops.

See our Home Page or follow us on Facebook for up-to-date information on recent and upcoming indoor and outdoor events.

 

Nature NL is a voice for nature in the matters of conservation, natural resource management and resource use. We raise awareness of environmental issues through submissions to the Environmental Assessment process.
