Nipissing's Naturalist Network

The Nipissing Naturalists Club is a friendly group interested in exploring and learning about our natural world. In addition to monthly meetings with engaging guest speakers, the NipNats host member outings and events in and around North Bay and the Nipissing District throughout the year. We also have an active group of birders - known as Bird Wing - who host regular meetings and outings.
