GRP NATH1 Natural History

Natural History

We meet on the 1st Monday from 10.00-12.00.

Venue: Manor Park Sports Club, Albert Rd North, Malvern, WR14 2TL.

(Inactive during: July, August, September (but field trips and study groups will continue)).

The group welcomes those who are new to natural history as well as members with prior interests in plant and animal life.

We are very practical in outlook, sharing knowledge and learning from one another. As well as our indoor meetings, sometimes with invited speakers, we have monthly field trips, and study groups.

The study groups focus on one  area over the seasons, allowing people to increase their knowledge in the field. This year (2023) the study group meets at Castlemorton Common. The SSSI is quite a large area as we have selected a smaller area to focus in. Occasionally we do explore other areas in the SSSI. Our intention is to keep this on until the end of 2024.

Current interests include plant life, birds, insects, fungi and the relationships between species and habitats. If you have an interest, join us to share it. If not, come to learn from others.
