Due to COVID-19 May and June talks will be held via zoom. A link and instructions for how to join the zoom meeting will be emailed members five days prior each talk. Unfortunately, all field trips are suspended until further notice. Please check back regularly for any updates.

We hold regular meetings, field trips, workshops and social events. If you're interested in botany, native plants and/or the natural environment and would like to meet enthusiastic, like-minded people, then this could be the society for you!

For a full list of upcoming events, see our diary.
