We meet on the third Thursday of each month except June, July and August. June features the annual club picnic. We meet 7:00 to 9:00 pm at the Heritage House, Riverside Park, on Lorne Street. Each meeting features a guest speaker presenting on a topic of relevance to the membership. The business meeting follows after the speaker.
Guests are welcome to attend our meetings.
Throughout the year, we host a variety of field trips guided by knowledgeable club members who are willing to share their expertise about the wonderful variety of natural ecosystems in the Kamloops area. Notice of field trips is posted under Upcoming Events. Non-members are welcome to join a field trip. You will be asked to sign a waiver form and pay $1.
