The Trinidad and Tobago Field Naturalists' Club, a society for the study of Natural History, is one of the oldest clubs existing in Trinidad and Tobago, having being founded on 10th July 1891. Approximately 250 members share interests in the natural environment such as birding, botany, photography, geology, research and scientific investigation, publication, conservation and protection.

The Field Naturalists' Club is a volunteer, non-profit organization. The main objectives of the club are to bring together persons interested in the study of natural history, the diffusion of knowledge thereof and the conservation of nature and natural resources.

Membership in the club is open to anyone who has an interest in nature and the natural environment.


The TTFNC conducts an annual program of monthly meetings, lectures,one-day field trips and overnight camps for the education and interest of our members.

Almost every weekend, you can meet with a special interest group such as the birding, botany, geology groups, to go on an excursion to one of the many areas in our country. Learn to identify the birds, plant and animal life that inhabit our forests, valleys, rivers and backyard gardens; wade through a swamp; take in the wonder of mud volcanoes, or just take a leisurely stroll with fellow nature lovers.
