The Nature Network is our partnership of Canadian naturalist organizations in every province across Canada. The network is thriving with about 100,000 affiliate members in more than 800 local clubs in cities all across Canada from coast to coast to coast.
By engaging Canadians through monitoring, research and advocacy activities, we are building a nature ethic in communities and cities across the country. We currently offer a program on developing “engagement organizing” practices for groups on the national, provincial and local levels. This program is designed to strengthen public engagement and grow internal capacity of local organizations as we strive towards conserving and protected nature in Canada. Read more about what resources are available through the Engagement Organizing program here.
