Our Programs


Join Lambton Wildlife on the last Monday of each month, unless otherwise stated, for a social gathering of like-minded people who love to experience and learn about nature. The evening begins with a social time where members and guests can get to know each other and learn more about the group and the local area. At 7:30pm, an expert naturalist, or experienced Lambton Wildlife member, will give a thought-provoking and educational presentation on one of many subjects that are of interested to our members. Topics may include wildlife, biology, ecosystems, conservation, natural landscaping, or photography, to name a few.

Guests and new members are always welcome.

When: The last Monday of the month (except for October). Social gathering starts at 7:00 pm (refreshments provided). Presentations begin at 7:30 pm.
Where: Esso Careers and Learning Centre, 660 Oakdale Ave., Sarnia (highway 402 & Colborne Rd.)
