Fritillary (Fritillaria meleagris)

Doncaster Naturalists' Society welcomes all those who are interested in Natural History - be that flora, fauna, or any other part of the natural environment.

The society aims to encourage interest in all aspects of natural history and to promote the conservation of wildlife and the protection of habitats, mainly within the area covered by the Doncaster Metropolitan Borough. It was founded in 1880 as the Doncaster Scientific Society and holds an extensive archive spanning 125 years. There is a full programme of field meetings during the summer, including amphibian and bat surveys, with indoor meetings and occasional workshops in the winter.
