The Brodie Club, established 1921

The Brodie Club is a group of serious and knowledgeable naturalists who enjoy lively discussion, penetrating questions and good fellowship. The club’s name honours Dr. William Brodie, one of the greatest all-round naturalists in Canada of his time.

Meetings are held monthly except in summer, and consist of a speaker, often a member, and natural history observations. A field excursion is held annually. Membership is by invitation, preceded by attendance at 3 meetings as a guest of an existing member.
