AGM and The Man who introduced the Club Medal

The Belfast Naturalists' Field Club was formed just over 150 years ago and is an eclectic mix of amateurs and professionals who are interested and enthusiastic about the natural sciences and the built environment.

The Club has four sections open to all members - Archaeology & History, Botany, Geology and Zoology.

You definitely don't need to be an expert to join. We welcome and encourage anyone who has an interest in the natural world to become a member. Memberships costs only £14.00 a year for adults, £1.00 for juniors and £5.00 for students.

Members have access to the experts who lead our Summer Field Trips as well as our series of Winter Lectures in the Ulster Museum.
