About the NB Naturalist
The NB Naturalist has been the voice of Nature NB since 1973. For three years prior to that (1970 to 1973) it was a publication of The New Brunswick Museum. Since 1995, responsibility for the magazine’s production has been shared by volunteer naturalists and Nature NB staff. Although the magazine has evolved and undergone format changes, it remains a magazine about the province’s natural history, written largely by and for New Brunswickers.
All aspects of New Brunswick’s natural history can find a home in the NB Naturalist!
