Blomidon Naturalists Society

Description
The Blomidon Naturalists Society is a field naturalists club centered around the eastern Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. The primary objective of the Society is to encourage and develop in its members and the public, an understanding and appreciation of nature which is interpreted broadly and includes the rocks, plants, animals, water, air and stars.

The records for the Blomidon Naturalists Society cover the years from 1974 to 2008 and consist of minutes, membership, newsletters, and projects. Christmas bird counts for the Wolfville area and other communities in the Annapolis Valley are included. Not all of the records have been made available digitally.
