Welcome to the DRFN website!
We are a group of friendly people who share our love of nature through regular meetings and field trips. We hope you will join us. The membership tab will help you do this.
Meetings are held the last Monday of the month with the exception of June, July, August and December. For location and a list of upcoming meetings please click "Meetings" on the menu. Members receive a newsletter 5 times per year.
We have regularly scheduled field trips. For a schedule of upcoming outings please click "Field Trips" on the menu. To see photos of past field trips please visit the DRFN Field Trip Photos on Shutterfly.
DRFN, with help from the Canadian Organic Growers Durham Chapter and the City of Oshawa, created a Butterfly Garden in 2004. Please visit! Click "Butterfly Garden" on the menu tab for more information. Find info on attracting butterflies to your garden. To see photos of the garden visit the DRFN Butterfly Garden Photos on Shutterfly.
