from 7:45PM until approximately 9:00PM from October until April - usually the second
Tuesday of the month .
Invited speakers give illustrated talks on a wide range of natural history topics .
During summer months a series of Natural History outings are organized .
The Trust began as a game and wildlife preservation society in 1960 and over the years evolved
to become a Wildlife Trust . The history of the club has been written by a previous Secretary ,
Maureen Graham, and details are on our history page.
We are building up our website to indicate interesting local sites and reflect important aspects of
local wildlife. This will require input from those with specific knowledge of different aspects of
natural history, including wild plants , butterflies, moths , fungi ,geology , mammals and birds .
