Welcome to Ingersoll District Nature Club

As an active and friendly community group in Ingersoll since 1952, the Nature Club welcomes new comers to participate in any of our activities.

Join us in a nature walk or other community activity. Please see our Club Activities for details of our planned hikes and meetings through our 2013-2014 programming year. Our group typically meets monthly, in informal gatherings, to enjoy outings in nature areas in and adjacent to Oxford County.

We are interested in the development and preservation of nature in Oxford County, and are formal stewards of the 36 acre (15 ha) Lawson Nature Reserve, south of Ingersoll. We are involved in:

  • Hiking and enjoying southwestern Ontario’s natural heritage
  • Fostering family events to ensure our children are exposed to local natural attractions
  • Stewarding the Lawson Nature Reserve - pond development, hillside restorations, trail maintenance, signage 
  • Encouraging seniors in active living through walks at the Nature Reserve
  • Celebrating Earth Day 
  • Advocating on behalf of nature!
