 About the Ingersoll District Nature Club

Since 1952, the Ingersoll District Nature Club has maintained an active and friendly nature community in Ingersoll. We welcome newcomers to participate in any and all 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 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 – invasive species management, hillside restorations, trail maintenance, signage, etc.
  • Encouraging seniors in active living through walks at the Nature Reserve
  • Celebrating Earth Day
  • Advocating on behalf of nature in general

So please, take a look around our site. You can see what we are all about, the activities that we offer, our signature trails and more. If you’re interested in becoming a member, you can click here.

Also please find IDNC articles and content in the OPAL Newsletter published by Oxford People Against the Landfill.

Happy Trails!
