Current Schedule and Recent Activities

Welcome to the Macoun Field Club!

We are now on summer break, but families can still enquire about having their children join at any time. Either phone Rob Lee at (613) 623-8123 (note that "Macoun" rhymes with "crown," not "croon"), or e-mail him at The Macoun Club is sponsored and supported by the Ottawa Field-Naturalists' Club (OFNC); there are no fees.

Indoor meetings take place at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden building beside the Experimental Farm's arboretum (Building no. 138). Meetings start at 10 a.m. and wrap up between 11:30 a.m. and noon. Field trips take place on alternate Saturdays and typically run about 5 hours (sometimes with the option to attend only the part before or after noon). We go to wild places in Ottawa's western Greenbelt (Stony Swamp) and Lanark County (the Pakenham Hills).
