Board & Bylaws

Nature Calgary is a not-for-profit society dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of natural areas in the Calgary area. Everyone is invited to join us as a member and participate in field trips, events, presentations and activities throughout the year.

We are a volunteer-led society. The Nature Calgary board of directors meets around six times a year and guides the direction of the society.

For any general inquiries, please send us a message and we will direct your message to the most suitable volunteer.
