Nature walks

Niagara River from
Queenston Heights

Peninsula Field Naturalists

Schedules many nature walks in spring, summer and fall. These are relaxed and easy paced for everyone. Many of our members are very well-informed about native plants and trees, mosses, lichens, the geology of the Niagara Region, and they gladly share their wisdom with everyone.

Whether you join one of our club outings or head out on your own, there are a few things you may want to take with you:

Wild Grasses near Short Hills

Some of our favourite places are Malcomson Ecopark, Short Hills Provincial Park and Woodend Nature Conservation Area. We welcome visitors, all adults and supervised children, to join us. Our next trip is coming soon! Check the calendar for our next outing.

Please leave parks and trails at least as clean as when you found them.

Merritt Trail, St. Catharines

Niagara is home

to many endangered and at-risk species. That's why it's important to be careful to stay on the paths and trails. Otherwise, delicate plants can be crushed and destroyed.

Never damage or pick the wild plants that you find on your nature walks.
