The Society holds regular indoor and outdoor meetings throughout the year. During the winter months, speakers are invited to the club to give entertaining talks on a wide variety of subjects, while in the summer months, field meetings are held at various locations where members can get to grips with the local wildlife.

All indoor meetings are held in the Quaker Meeting House, Thornhill Street, Wakefield, WF1 1NQ and commence at 7:30pm prompt. Annual membership is £10 per a £1 door fee. Visitors are welcome to attend any meeting but there is a £3 door fee per person.

All persons taking part in our field meetings do so at their own risk. Neither the Society or it’s officers will accept any responsibility for any injury, loss or damage howsoever sustained. Please wear suitable footwear for outdoor meetings and packed lunches are advisable on the more distant field trips.
