About us

The society meets regularly through the year with a varied programme of events (see Programme)

Members are mainly from Elloughton cum Brough,  Welton and  Brantingham with some from more distant parts of East Yorkshire.  Many of the original members from 1996 are still active but new members are always welcome.

In the local environment we have planted trees, we organise litter picking and we own an area of woodland and meadow dedicated as a nature reserve and popular with local residents as an attractive amenity. (see Our Reserve)

Our programme during Autumn and Winter consists mostly of illustrated talks by visiting speakers and in the Spring and Summer mostly of outdoor events including fungus forays,  bird watching,  mothing at night and butterfly walks.  Visits to places of interest to ecologists and environmentalists are arranged as well as a series of litter pickings in the area.
