The NatureNB mailing list was established in 1996 to serve naturalists who are interested in sharing information about the animal and plant life and natural features of New Brunswick. Subscribing gives you the opportunity to exchange ideas, share filed trip information and observations, announce upcoming field trips or meetings, and ask questions about nature and what others are doing to enjoy and protect it. Postings are welcome in English and French.
