Administrative history

The Quinte Field Naturalists Club was founded on January 16, 1952. A local committee of the Ontario Field Naturalists from the Entomology Laboratory at Bleecker and Dundas Streets in Belleville met with the Belleville Brown Thrasher Nature Club to form the Quinte Field Naturalists Club. An executive was chosen and the public invited to join the club through an article in the local newspaper. Meetings were held the first Monday of each month, usually at the Entomology Laboratory.
The Quinte Field Naturalists of Belleville were incorporated on January 2, 1991 according to information found within the fonds. The Quinte Field Naturalists is one of many member organizations belonging to Ontario Nature (formerly known as the Federation of Ontario Naturalists) headquartered in Toronto, Ontario.
