We promote the study and recording of wildlife in Hertfordshire and encourage a wider interest in natural history including the conservation of wildlife, habitats and geological features.
Our members share an interest in nature and observing and studying wildlife. We get real value from your observations by coordinating and compiling everyone’s records to build up a comprehensive picture of the state of wildlife in the county. This helps us understand how it is changing over time in response to the pressures of modern life and climate change.
Pasque Flower photographed at Therfield Heath by Steve Chilton on 2 April 2017
We welcome photographs of Hertfordshire wildlife sent in by members (and non-members) such as these classic signs of spring taken at opposite ends of the county: an iconic Pasque Flower on chalk healthland at Therfield and mating Common Toads at Stocker's Lake near Rickmansworth. Photographs can be emailed (in jpeg format) to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The pictures we receive are published in the HNHS photo galleries here, while others can be found in the Flora group and Bird Club websites. Please note that we are currently seeking a volunteer willing to spend a few hours each month keeping the HNHS website photo galleries up to date. Contact if you might be interested.
