Welcome to the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) club . . .  exploring and learning about nature in the Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place, Perth, Lanark Highlands, Beckwith and surrounding areas of Lanark County in Ontario’s pristine Mississippi River Valley, since 1988. “If you enjoy the out-of-doors and you want to know more about the wonderful world of nature in our area we urge you to become a member of the MVFN.” Those words appeared in our first club newsletter published in November of our first year as a naturalist club. Now well into our 25th year and now a registered charitable organization, MVFN continues to be an active field naturalist club providing the opportunity to learn about and help conserve the natural world with people of all age groups and ranging from neophyte nature lovers to knowledgeable field naturalists and experts.


MVFN offers many activities, from monthly natural history talks, regular nature walks, field trips and canoe/kayak outings and other opportunities to explore many fascinating aspects of our natural world. There are also opportunities to take part in habitat creation projects, trail building, citizen science work, environmental stewardship projects, writing about natural history for MVFN publications, communications and other volunteer work.
