Nature Outings

Visit our calendar for event dates and information.

Join us and get outdoors!

NOTE: As these are nature outings please take precaution for poison ivy, insect bites, and sun exposure.


All of our leaders are volunteers who give their time and expertise freely. All participants are encouraged to share their knowledge and enthusiasm. Remember to bring along any items you think you might need such as water, field guides, binoculars, insect repellant, etc. Some walks may be more rigorous than others, so please assess your ability to participate. If you’re unsure of what to expect, check with the contact person listed. Pets on hikes are strongly discouraged as they startle wildlife, damage nests and interfere with the enjoyment of other participants.

Hikes are sometimes cancelled or rescheduled. You are advised to check the HNC website before setting out to ensure that the hike has not been rescheduled.

The Hamilton Naturalists’ Club assumes no responsibility for injuries of any kind sustained by anyone as a result of participating in any of these activities.
