Macoun Field Club – Connecting the child with the wild

Macoun Field Club - Connecting the child with the wild

(Theme 4 – Habitat, Theme 6 – Natural Capital)

Organization: Ottawa Field-Naturalists’ Club

Timeline for Completion: Started 1948 Ongoing


The Macoun Field Club is for children and youth from ages 8 to 18. It has been bringing kids into first-hand contact with nature and with people who are dedicated to the study of nature for 65 years. It is sponsored by the Ottawa Field-Naturalists’ Club. There are no fees.

Indoor meetings take place at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden building beside the Experimental Farm’s arboretum (Building no. 138). Meetings start at 10 a.m. and wrap up between 11:30 a.m. and noon. Field trips take place on alternate Saturdays and typically run about 5 hours (sometimes with the option to attend only the part before or after noon). We go to wild places in Ottawa’s western Greenbelt (Stony Swamp) and Lanark County (the Pakenham Hills).
