Alnwick Wildlife Group is all about enjoying and exploring the wildlife in our bit of Northumbria. In the comfort of a friendly meeting place you can join with other like-minded folk to hear excellent speakers, swap news and share experiences.
We have about 120 members, all with very mixed abilities, but there is something for everyone.
Every year, between September and May, we have monthly meetings with talks on a variety of subjects, which are always followed by refreshments and an opportunity to chat.
Together we produce a monthly newsletter which reviews the past month and looks forward to the next. It has items of interest and a record of members sightings for the month, not just the unusual but of everyday interest too. Our records are included in a national database and are of value to students and conservationists. Anyone is welcome to contribute an article or just a note of some interesting event they have witnessed. We think this is worth the annual subscription alone.
There are occasional field trips which enable members to visit places of interest with someone who is familiar with the site.
For the active types there are wildlife projects always on the go and regardless of your ability every little helps. See the “Projects” page of this website. Some of these earn a financial return and we try to help, in a small way, other wildlife projects being carried out in the county.
If you are new to the Alnwick area, joining AWG is the best way to discover the local hot spots for whatever your interest may be. Why not give Alnwick Wildlife Group a try?
