The Federation of BC Naturalists (BC Nature) is a federation of local natural history groups, formed in 1969 which now represents 50 local nature clubs with 6000 members throughout BC.
As a grassroots, largely volunteer organization, BC Nature works to protect and educate naturalists, the public and decision makers about the natural history of British Columbia, including its biodiversity, species at risk, and parks and other natural areas. Our members participate in many groups that help shape public policy on our environment. Our member clubs are at the forefront of many conservation and stewardship projects, and most clubs organize nature outings and speakers in their local communities.
BC Nature is the lead organization for these projects in BC: Wildlife Tree Stewardship, Important Bird Area Caretakers, Wildlife Viewing, Living by Water and Provincial Park Interpretation.
