Field Trips and Winter Talks

Field trips or indoor talks take place all year round, usually on Saturdays. Talks are scheduled in the winter because there is less activity in the wild; summer is far too busy, with different plants and insects to see almost every week.

Here are links to the current schedules.

Please be aware that the countryside has its hazards, and you come on field trips at your own risk.
