Seniors For Nature Outdoor Club


The Club was established in 1985 by enthusiastic canoeists from across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.   It is affiliated with Ontario Nature.   

Over the years this non-profit club has evolved to offer many group events- organized and led by dedicated volunteers who love outdoor activities.

Members have the opportunity to canoe/kayak, cycle,  cross country ski, snowshoe, hike, and enjoy social and cultural activities.   

The club is unique in running single day programs on week days.  This works well for our members who are often retired or have flexible work schedules.                                


  •  In the spring activities kick off with the New Members day.  Canoes are available and novices are paired with experienced canoeists.  All enjoy sharing experiences at the BBQ.
  •  We canoe/kayak on Tuesdays (canoes and kayaks are available at no cost) and bike on Thursdays.     Multi-day trips include camping with paddling, biking and hiking as well as biking trips. 


  •  From October to May, we meet at 12:30 p.m. on the 1st Thurs of each month at Edithvale Community Centre (131 Finch Ave West, at the corner of Finch & Edithvale, south side of Finch, 3 blocks west of Yonge).   Here members initiate and renew friendships over coffee and snacks, are stimulated by educational programs and take part in the business of running this non-profit club.
  •  In the fall, hiking and cycling and community activities are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
  • The fall BBQ is a favorite event.
  •  In the winter, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, skating are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Multi-day trips include a lodge outing where members  cross country ski, snowshoe and socialize, and other overnight trips in various accommodations.

We welcome all those over 55 who have a love of the outdoors. You will meet lots of people who share your enthusiasm.

Guests (either accompanied or unaccompanied by a member) are welcome to try us out for up to two of our terrific outings and/or join us at one of our meetings.  In order to participate in our activities you must either be a member or sign a guest waiver form .
