Society of Grasslands Naturalists


The Society of Grasslands Naturalists (GN) is a regional organization that involves itself with the ecological and environmental understanding, education, projects and issues within southeastern Alberta. GN was started in 1985 by a half dozen avid naturalists who just wanted to get together and go on nature walks. The club became increasingly involved in environment and conservation issues and was incorporated as a society in May 1991. Membership now stands at 155. Some of the club activities include the Mountain Bluebird Trail in the Cypress Hills, the Spring Bird and Flower Count, the Christmas Bird Count and the annual June Picnic!
