Derby Natural History Society
was founded just over 100 years ago. Today we are as active as ever, having a varied programme of lectures, activities and outdoor expeditions catering for all people in the Derby area of England who are interested in wildlife and geology. We produce an Annual Journal ‘Observations’ which is full of interesting articles and pictures - copies of which are available to non-members for £2.50.
Although there are ‘experts’ in the Society, the majority of members are people who simply enjoy natural history and
being out in the countryside - so please don’t be put off joining us through feeling you may be out of your depth!
