About us

The Malaspina Naturalists are a group of people fascinated by the flora, fauna and geology surrounding Powell River, here in beautiful British Columbia.

At heart we’re a club of enthusiasts rather than one of advocates.  We don’t raise money or endorse causes, no matter how worthy they may be.
Instead we focus on doing three things:

  • we invite speakers to share their passion for nature, whether that be through science, exploration of amazing places, or something else.
  • we lead field-trips to help others explore and understand our local (and not so local) environments.
  • we involve young naturalists in a variety of activities that are fun, safe and educational.

We hope you’ll enjoy these pages and welcome you to join us!
