Our Mission:To foster an awareness, appreciation and understanding of our natural environment, that it may be wisely used and maintained for future generations.
Our Vision:To know nature and keep it worth knowing.
The Rocky Mountain Naturalists is a Cranbrook/Kimberley Club under the umbrella of BC Nature, which represents more than 50 nature clubs throughout British Columbia. We participate in diverse outdoor activities in all seasons, including hiking, biking, canoeing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, all with the purpose of viewing and studying our natural world. One of our main projects is assisting with the stewardship of Elizabeth Lake in Cranbrook. We also conduct numerous bird surveys, including the Audubon Christmas Bird Counts in Cranbrook and Kimberley and friendly bird competitions such as the Winter Seekers Challenge and a Little Big Day.
