Welcome to the Ringwood Natural History Society's Home Page

Brown Hairstreak by Gerry Traves 

The Society was founded in 1959: to share with others an  interest in natural history; to provide an opportunity to  learn more of the subject through talks and outings, take  an active interest in local nature conservation and keep  records of local flora and fauna. 

Meetings are held at Greyfriars in Ringwood, from  September until April, at 7:30pm on the 2nd & 4th  Thursday of the month. Walks and other outings take place throughout the year.

We take our time to identify flowering plants, birds and butterflies etc.

    If you are interested in natural history do come along for one of our walks, or meet up with us for a get-together. We        normally take a picnic lunch during the summer months: in the winter there's the opportunity for those not walking to        meet us for a pub lunch.
  New members and visitors can be sure of a warm welcome.

 to see our current programme.        to see our species lists.       for a membership application form.
