All regular monthly meetings are at 7:00 pm in the Heritage House, Riverside Park. We meet on the third Thursday of the month.
This month we need your input about how the Kamloops Naturalist Club can best provide activities that help to accomplish our mission of “knowing nature and keeping it worth knowing.”
Your input is needed! KNC will be joined by Robyn McLean of Tapestry Evaluation and Strategy for a special evening of dialogue and brainstorming.
Help chart the future direction of the club and shape its activities. Bring your suggestions on how we can better protect the natural world and share our appreciation of it with the public.

Rick Howie will be speaking about Important Bird Areas (IBAs). Canada’s Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas Program is a science-based initiative to identify, conserve, and monitor a network of sites that provide essential habitat for Canada’s bird populations.
We have two such areas near Kamloops that Rick originally proposed and has been monitoring to some degree. Rick will briefly describe the South Thompson River and Douglas Plateau IBAs and discuss monitoring procedures and how our club can add to the monitoring and promotion of these areas.
Prior to Rick’s talk, Katelyn Bissat, of the Invasive Species Council of BC, will be giving a brief presentation on their new youth program.
