ABOUT US... The Chilliwack Field Naturalists, formed in 1971, is  an affiliated club of the province-wide BC Nature, formerly the Federation of BC Naturalists.


 COME and JOIN US... The Chilliwack Field Naturalists provide an opportunity for all ages to get acquainted with our natural world. Our "Knowing Nature" evening speakers series provide a full complement of interesting, illustrated talks featuring geology, plants, wildlife habitats and ecosystems.  We hold member-led field trips at least once a month and welcome visitors on these trips.


WHY GET OUT IN NATURE ?  To enjoy and interpret the natural history of the Upper Fraser Valley to appreciate and promote conservation of the natural ecosystems that support us all and to ensure the future of wild species and spaces


STEWARDSHIP...We steward a 8.2 hectare property for the Nature Trust and hold sessions at the property on Camp River Road on the first Saturday of the month and the first Wednesday in the evening in summer months.

Our members are active in two Christmas Bird Count, Great Canadian Birdathon, Butterfly Monitoring, David Suzuki's Butterfly Project, E-bird, Project Feeder Watch, Great Back Yard Bird Count, Ice Watch and many other programs that contribute to our understanding of nature
