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 co-ordinating 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.
Photos of Hertfordshire wildlife can be found in the photo galleries here and in the Flora group and Bird Club websites.
We have been studying and documenting the natural history of our county for over 130 years. We endeavour to cover all branches of natural history relevant to Hertfordshire.
We are pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of Birds of Hertfordshire - a full county avifauna - this brilliant new book will cover all the bird species commonly seen in the county plus information on every species ever recorded in Hertfordshire.
It will include the results of the most recent Atlas surveys of breeding and wintering birds, together with analysis and comparison with the two previous atlases. More information and how to buy a copy....
