The OFNC provides many opportunities to give practical support to nature and natural history.

We have active birding programs, a youth club, a naturalized garden, a peer-reviewed scientific journal, a club news bulletin, field trips, and a public lecture program. They can all use your help.

OFNC activities are carried out by committees of volunteers. Join a committee and help run the Club. Some committees are responsible for program areas, such as Birds, Conservation, Fletcher Wildlife Garden, Macoun Field Club and Publications. Other committees deal with organizational and administrative matters—Awards, Education & Publicity, Events, Finance, and Membership.

In particular…

  • The Finance Committee needs someone who is comfortable with numbers and documents in Excel format but does not have to have accounting background.  The amount of work could be just a couple of meetings a year or could be an ongoing responsibility to track deposits.

  • Safe Wings Ottawa needs volunteers to monitor buildings during spring and fall migration, to transport injured birds, and to help with other tasks. For more information, see safewings.ca/volunteer. (posted Nov.2017)
