Membership is open to people of all ages that have an interest in nature, natural history, ecology, nature education, and who care for the environment. Together with approximately 50 other clubs and societies in B.C., the Bulkley Valley Naturalists belong to BC Nature (The Federation of B.C. Naturalists). A portion of our membership fees goes to BC Nature and this entitles all of our members to receive the BC Nature quarterly magazine, participate in all BC Nature camps, meetings and other events.
