KNOW NATURE AND KEEP IT WORTH KNOWING
The North Okanagan Naturalists’ Club is a member of BC Nature, the Federation of British Columbia Naturalists. Founded in 1951, our club remains active locally and provincially, enjoying experiences in nature, sharing our knowledge and passion with others, and protecting our natural environment.
On this page are listed upcoming events. The public is welcome at all club events, unless stated otherwise. See our Membership page to learn how to officially join NONC and support our efforts.
Currently cancelled due to the pandemic, but we will eventually resume meeting on the first Wednesday of the month (September through May), at 7:00 pm. at the Schubert Centre, 3505 30th Ave., Vernon, in the Banquet Room. Visitors welcome!
Once a week, usually on Monday, NONC members receive a Weekly Message by e-mail. This is a compilation of club news, observations, notices and photographs collected over the past week. The Weekly Message is sent only to NONC members.
Our logo shows the Loesel’s Twayblade (Liparis loeselii), also known as Fen Orchid. This plant was discovered by club members in 1965. Previously unknown in the area, it was adopted as the club emblem.
