Welcome we are a group of like minded people you enjoy exploring nature and the natural world. We have regular outings and meetings where new people are welcome to attend, to find out more click here.

Please note:

We are starting to resume normal activities but due to COVID-19 restrictions to inhibit any community spread of the virus, we have to do things differently including:

  • Restricting numbers at any one event by booking in to attend through event leaders
  • Observing social distancing within activities, and registering attendance, even in field settings
  • Following hygiene measures including using own hand sanitiser, not coughing near others etc
  • Being prepared to stay at home if we have any symptoms that could be Covidvirus
  • Keeping ourselves updated through website/emails in case we have to cancel our Events


General Meetings have now returned to the Royal Society Lecture Room, SA Museum, behind SA Library; access from Plane Tree Courtyard off Kintore Avenue.

(Not SA Museum Armoury Room as previously advised)

To advise attendance/enquiries Please email:
Janet Pedler jpedler@senet.com.au

There are no upcoming events.
