Nature Northwest Newsletter

Nature Northwest is a publication of the Thunder Bay Field Naturalists. The first newsletter, produced on a typewriter, came out in January 1947. Most of the newsletter issues from that first one to the present day have now been uploaded to our website (see below). Some issues remain to be digitized, hard copies of other issues are still being searched for and others are waiting inclusion following the resolution of a technical issue. As they become available for uploading they will be added to the table below.

This digital record of the TBFN's history over 12 decades represents a valuable resource for researchers of the area's natural history and persons interested in the club's history. 

Each volume of Nature Northwest (ISSN 0836-4702) consists of four issues currently published in February, May, August, and November. A subscription to Nature Northwest is a benefit of TBFN membership.

Articles, notes, records, illustrations and photographs of local and regional natural history are welcome. Please feel free to contact the editor in advance regarding possible submissions. Material accepted is subject to editing and revision. Nature Northwest is intended to be informative and thought provoking. Therefore, views expressed in Nature Northwest are not necessarily those of the Thunder Bay Field Naturalists or the Editor.

Send events, stories, trip reviews, articles, pictures, and observations. Please do not copy  material outside of the Newsletter without expressed consent of the original author. Your ideas and suggestions are welcome. Address all submissions to the editor seboyko1(at)lakeheadu(dot)caEmese Boyko.

Deadline for submissions is the first day of the month in which the issue will be published.

February issue…….……...February 1st

May issue………….….......May 1st

Past Newsletters

From the Membership Coordinator's annual report for 2012: "When we distributed the November issue of Nature Northwest in 2009, we mailed out 168 and emailed 9. In November 2012, we mailed 67 and emailed 200. This is a significant change in how TBFN distributes the newsletter."
