Headwaters Nature

The Headwaters Nature field naturalists club is made up of people who share a common interest in the natural environment: enjoying it, preserving it, and learning more about it, in all of its incredible complexity and beauty.

We organize a variety of activities throughout the year, including the ever-popular Spring and Christmas bird counts, wildflower walks and other field trips.

The Club was founded in 1986 and is managed by an Executive Committee that is elected by the membership each year.

The regular monthly meetings include top-notch speakers are brought in to inform and delight all who attend. The meetings are open to the public at no charge. Anyone who shares our interest in all things natural is welcome to take out a membership.
