Nature Network

Become a member group in our Nature Network

Kawartha Field Naturalist and Ontario Nature staff


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 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.

“Over the years, Conservation Ontario and Ontario Nature have collaborated on initiatives related to the conservation and restoration of natural systems which support watershed and community resilience and strengthen the health of Ontario’s economy.”

Angela Coleman, General Manager, Conservation Ontario

“Through the Nature Network, High Park Nature is part of a family of nature protectors that share stories and collaborate when action is required – especially when natural areas are threatened. We are happy to sign onto petitions, participate in programs and join tours, where we share our issues and successes. The Conservation Awards, youth programs, group insurance and ON Nature magazine are some of the benefits of membership. It’s great to meet other like-minded groups and know that we aren’t alone in our efforts.”

Sharon Lovett for High Park Nature

“Any conservation group trying to protect the environment soon learns how difficult it can be to amplify your message and achieve your goals without support. Ontario Nature has helped elevate Eagle Lake Farabout Peninsula Coalition’s concerns and bring them to the forefront through consultation, on-site visits, data gathering, strategizing and publicity of Farabout articles. This organization has been invaluable to the evolution of our group and our achievements over the years.”

Dale MacKenzie, Co-Chair, Eagle Lake Farabout Peninsula Coalition
