Walks and Visits

Each year a variety of field trips are arranged, such as fungus forays, bird walks, species identification (e.g. flowers, bumble-bees, butterflies), different habitats, etc.

These are open to the public and therefore serve to introduce non-members to the variety and importance of local species.
