|| About Us
In June 1952, fifteen enthusiastic naturalists attended the first meeting of the South Peel Naturalists'
Club, which was held at the Port Credit home of Lucie McDougall. The group formed a overall vision for what
they wanted to achieve. That vision is summarized in this statement, published in a 1962 club newsletter ...
“We have an established place among those who feel strongly that the natural resources of Ontario
are worthy of respect and therefore, of preservation. This
Club endeavours to do its part in ensuring
that future generations may still have opportunity for contact with the earth and the things that live
on it – that earth on
which, in the last analysis, we all absolutely depend.”
Today, we have over 200 active members from Mississauga, Oakville and surrounding communities.
Through our various activities and publications, we provide an opportunity
We are a member club of Ontario Nature
and an affliate of Nature Canada .
for members to enjoy
nature, to expand their knowledge, and to share experiences with
other members. Through the Club
’s special interest groups, members learn about
specific subjects of interest to them, or
become involved in local conservation issues.
