Some Nats members in our 150th anniversary year

Barnsley Nats brings together people with an interest in the natural world in and around Barnsley. We like to learn about wildlife and all aspects of nature and share knowledge and information. There is also a social aspect to our activities. We have a programme of talks and field visits throughout the year.

Monthly indoor meetings are now (October 2023) held at Worsbrough Common Community Centre, Warren Quarry Lane S70 4ND on Wednesdays from October to March. The meetings begin at 7.00pm and end by 9.00pm.

They consist of illustrated talks by informed speakers and occasional practical evenings on themes of interest to members. Parking is available at the centre and at the side of Warren Quarry Lane.

We also hold field trips throughout the year. These are 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 summer months from April to September, replacing the indoor meetings on Wednesday evenings. Extra visits may also take place.

Time is taken to identify and make lists of the species encountered for members’ personal interest, for the Society’s records and for the Barnsley Biological Record Centre.
