Are you into natural history? We do lots of bird watching, wildflower walks, bushwalking, beachcombing, fungi forays, and learning about ecology. (No, it's nothing to do with nudism. Think David Attenborough - he always keeps his clothes on, at least on TV!)

This Meetup is run in conjunction to the Western Australian Naturalists’ Club, one of the longest established  conservation and natural history groups in Australia. As such the events are attended by many club members who are not in the Meetup, so don't worry if event numbers look low.

The club is a lively organisation that caters for all environmentally conscious members of the community. It's a well respected group catering to a wide range of interests, from amateur to professional. All branches of natural history and conservation are covered in a full program of meetings, excursions, workshops and occasional social events. These include bird watching, botany, spotlighting, fossicking for fossils and fungi, observing habitats from forests to reefs, some geology as well as learning more about environmental issues in Western Australia such as soil salinity, introduced flora and fauna and land degradation.

In addition to the main/central club, there are three branches in the eastern, northern and southern suburbs. Also, there are some special interest groups: eg bushwalking, fungi. Activities are held for under-18s, too.

New members are encouraged to come to some events, then join the Club if it offers what you're after. Attend as many talks as you like and sample a few excursions, but if you want to come on regular excursions we'd prefer that you join, for insurance purposes. But no one will pressure you! Annual fees are very reasonable, see our website: Western Australian Naturalists' Club Inc.
