About Us

Welcome to Waterloo Region Nature! We are a naturalist club for all parts of the Region of Waterloo and we are a charity engaged in conservation activities. We are pleased to sponsor fun activities about any aspect of nature - for adults, youth and children. They include indoor meetings and outings. If you are not already a member, please explore our website and feel free to sample our activities! Waterloo Region Nature is affiliated with Ontario Nature, our province’s umbrella group for nature enthusiasts.

Land Acknowledgement

We are all treaty people with a responsibility to honour all our relations and be active in the calls for Truth and Reconciliation across Turtle Island (North America).
