About us

The Cardiff Naturalists' Society is the longest established wildlife organization in the area having been formed in 1867.

In modern times it has been the premier place for people with a wide interest in all aspects of wildlife as it has the most varied programme of indoor lectures and field meetings on offer of any local society.

Talks and field trips cover all aspects of Wildlife from Plants to Animals, Birds, the Environment and Geology. With a mix of talks on local places in and around Cardiff and also the wider world. They are suitable for all levels of knowledge.

Time beforehand allows members to chat and socialise. At an annual Members evening allows members show their own slides and specimens in a highly informal and friendly setting (see the activities pages for details on regular and current events)

Whatever your interests and level of expertise it offers you a warm welcome.

For more information please contact us on the details provided on the contact pages.
