Explore, appreciate, and preserve all the best parts of Calgary’s nature.

Exploring birds, plants and natural areas in Calgary since 1955.

Nature Calgary is a community of Calgarians that promotes the preservation of natural habitats, provides educational opportunities and supports the collection of natural history observations. Together we learn, explore and share. Everyone is invited to join us.


Our monthly Speaker Series and study groups include researchers, natural history specialists and Nature Calgary members who have experiences and knowledge to share.


Join us for field trips and excursions. Our focus is for all ages to enjoy and share natural history in a safe and respectful way, including our popular Nature Kids program.


There are many opportunities to share your passion with our members and throughout Calgary – lead a field trip, speak at an event or represent Nature Calgary out in the community.
