BARNSLEY NATURALIST AND SCIENTIFIC SOCIETY
1867-2017 = 150th Anniversary Year
We hold indoor meetings on alternate Wednesdays all year round (except during August)
in Barnsley Town Hall on Church Street.
See the indoor programme page for the current programme.
The meetings begin at 7 pm and end about 8.50 pm. They consist mainly of illustrated
talks by informed speakers, with occasional practical evenings on themes of interest
We also hold field trips at intervals throughout the year. These are usually held
on Saturday mornings, and take the form of short-distance informal walks at local
venues of natural history interest.
There are additional outdoor meetings in the months of May, June and July which are
held on Wednesday evenings from 7pm to around 9pm. See the outdoor programme page
for for details.
Time is taken to identify and make lists of the species encountered for members’
personal interest and for the Society’s records.
Details of the indoor and outdoor meetings can be found on the respective programme
pages of this site.
