Be the Change: Inspiration for the Future

Ontario Nature hosted our 88th Annual Gathering in Hamilton from May 31 to June 2, 2019. The weekend celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Hamilton Naturalists’ Club – one of Ontario Nature’s founding groups.

Thank you to everyone who attended. It’s always a pleasure to get together with members to celebrate our accomplishments and spend time in nature.

Highlights of the weekend include:

  • Inspiring speakers;
  • Hands-on, expert-led nature workshops;
  • Conservation Awards that recognize achievements of conservation heroes; and
