Kitchener-Waterloo Field Naturalists came into existence in 1934. "In response to a letter sent out by C. B. Price, Fred Montgomery, Frank Shantz, Gerry Knechtel and Roy Dickson, a group of ten people interested in the study of nature met at the [Kitchener] YMCA to discuss the formation of a nature club in Kitchener-Waterloo." With a brief hiatus (1942-1946) due to the demands of the Second World War, the club has continued its lively, interesting and dedicated pursuit of its objectives. More detail regarding activities and accomplishments is available on the History page.
