Donate – Nature Reserves

Since the Thunder Bay Field Naturalists acquired our first Nature Reserve at the Nipigon River mouth in 1993, the program has grown rapidly. We now own 18 pieces of property protecting more than 2,000 hectares (5,000 acres). TBFN is a registered charity and can issue charitable donations receipts for the value of the land donated. We are registered with the federal government as a recognized “Recipient of Ecologically Sensitive Lands”.

Description

The main purpose of the Thunder Bay Field Naturalists Nature Reserves is to protect the natural habitats, birds, plants and animals that live in these special places. We do not maintain trails, parking lots, fences, gates or any other facilities at the nature reserves.The Reserves are there largely for protection, with recreational uses of secondary importance. We encourage you to visit and quietly enjoy the TBFN Reserves, while respecting the special natural features there. Motorized vehicles, including ATVs, snowmobiles, and dirt bikes, are not allowed. Hunting, overnight camping, and campfires are also prohibited. If you need detailed directions on how to find these locations please contact the Nature Reserves Chair. Visitors are welcome to join in on club field trips that go to many of the reserves. We invite you to come along.
