The LNHS events programme is one of the most varied and active of a natural history society. Its field and indoor meetings encourage the interaction of beginners and experienced naturalists.
These usually consist of talks, slide shows or discussions. Indoor meetings are held at several venues:
These are field meetings or guided tours. Lunch and Tea should be brought on all whole-day meetings. You do not need to have a car - where the programme says 'cars needed' this is to remind drivers they will need to pick up people at the station or meeting point. At meetings involving cars, those receiving lifts are expected to contribute to the cost of petrol used.
These go to well-known wildlife sites in the South and East of England. Bookings must be made in advance using the booking form that is mailed to members. It can also be downloaded here. Members can bring guests (at the same rate per person) so long as they are included on the booking form. The coach trip organiser is Neil Anderson Tel: (020) 8578 2464.
Members are asked not to travel to coach meetings independently, although in some cases the organiser may be prepared to allow this if application is made in advance.
Coaches normally leave from the road alongside the south entrance to Embankment Underground station. Occasionally they can pick up at a second point en route on the outskirts of London (check with organiser). Bear in in mind that engineering work and weekend line closures are taking place on the Underground - please check in advance whether your route to Embankment station will be affected.
