Edinburgh Natural History Society is a group of people of mixed age, ability and interest in the natural world. We explore the habitats of animals, plants, fungi and other organisms living in the area and relate this to the habitats.
For nearly 150 years the people of Edinburgh and the surrounding areas have explored nature. The Edinburgh Natural History Society started it's life as The Edinburgh Naturalists' Field Club in 1869.
Edinburgh Natural History Society is made up of learners and teachers at all levels of knowledge and collectively known as NATS.
Joining the 'Nats' is an excellent way to begin an interest in natural history, and many of our members stay with us for the rest of their lives.
The society caters for novices and experts alike.
The society's main activities are year-round outdoor meetings, and monthly indoor meetings between September and April.
We are a not-for-profit organisation, run by unpaid volunteers.
