We are Headwaters Nature, a group of nature enthusiasts, in the beautiful Headwaters region of Southern Ontario, around Orangeville. We live and explore nature in the Headwaters of the Credit, Humber, Nottawasaga, Saugeen, and Grand Rivers.

All six are functionally the same. All are the website addresses or URLs for the rejuvenated website for our Headwaters Nature club. It doesn’t matter whether you include ‘www’ or not. It doesn’t matter if you include ‘https” or not. It doesn’t matter whether anything is capitalized or not. All the various options end up sending you to this website. Please bookmark this and refer to it regularly.

We see this name, onHeadwatersNature.ca, as having various possible interpretations. Firstly, ‘ON’ could stand for Ontario, the home province of our club. Or it could mean ‘on the topic of’ Nature within the Headwaters region: “exploring nature in the Headwaters area”.

This website will develop into a hub connecting our members with on-going club activities and topics of interest. We will soon be rolling out links from this website to Facebook, to Twitter, and to Instragram, as well as to iNaturalist. All of these service will include onHeadwatersNature in their name.

It is the website for our club. We encourage members to submit short blog posts, such as book reviews, or topical thoughts, or recent observations. If you prefer using photographs to be creative with, or to show your observations, please include them as well. Interesting photos could go into a blog post, and/or could also appear in the Gallery page. Please send your submissions to the Webmaster. If you have comments about the website, also please address them to the Webmaster.

At the end of every blog post, there is also the opportunity to send comments that will appear below the actual post. (We reserve the right to edit every comment sent to us.)
