Join us to find those special places for nature, whether the Hawk Cliff raptor migration, looking at a bee hive, the Christmas bird count, finding out about local wetlands, or seeing our sponsored Peregrine falcons banded. There is always something new!


Non-members are welcome to attend any outing, although we do have to ask you to sign a Waiver Form at the start of the outing.


We schedule as many outings per month as there are people willing to lead them. If you have a special place that you like to visit, why not share it with other members?


Do you know a great place to explore nature but don’t want to be a leader? Suggest a “meet ’n’ greet.” You set a time and place and everybody just walks and enjoys together without a leader. Easy and no stress!


To offer to lead a future outing or to suggest an outing destination, please contact Shannon Pennington at outings@waterlooregionnature.ca. For more information on a specific outing, please contact the outing leader.

We will continue to explore safe outing opportunities once provincial and/or regional lockdowns have lifted, and we will stay connected with you via our club website, email, social media, and the club newsletter The Heron.
