The Macoun Field Club is a field naturalists' club in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada for young people between the ages of 8 and 18. The Club is named for John Macoun, Canada's first Dominion Naturalist. The members get together once a week (typically Saturdays), alternating indoor meetings at which research students or scientists give presentations on their work or field of study, with outdoor field trips to either the club's study area in Stony Swamp Conservation Area or other locations.
