Bring a Friend!

Saugeen Nature needs new members to stay vibrant. They bring new ideas and new energy to the club. In turn, the people of Grey and Bruce need us! We offer unique experiences outdoors in the sometimes lesser known natural areas of Grey and Bruce, and indoors with our interesting range of speakers.

Many studies have shown the benefits that being out in nature brings to people, including increased physical and mental health. Even seeing a natural view from a window can help people who are in hospital heal faster. Our club offers many opportunities for people to get outside in natural areas and learn about the ways of wildlife. Members and guests benefit both physically and mentally.

So, bring a friend to one of our outings, or to one of our indoor events. They will benefit from the healthy experience of being in the outdoors, surrounded by nature, as well as from learning new things about the world around us.

Among those whom we bring along on outings or to an indoor event, some will enjoy the club experience and come back for more. It will be a win-win for everyone.
