Bruce MacKenzie, Hamilton Naturalists Club © Bronwen Tregunno

At the core of our work lies a commitment to nature. That commitment is shared by a province-wide network of groups and individuals.

This dedicated network of more than 150 local conservation groups helps us bring local issues across Ontario to the attention of the province. The Nature Network is our eyes and ears on the ground. Together we are a powerful collective voice for conservation. Many of our conservation initiatives would not be possible without the help of the Nature Network member groups.

For more information about the member groups, please contact the Nature Network Coordinator.
