Welcome to our new program of talks and walks for 2020.
Click on tabs above for more details.
We hope you will agree that the council have managed to put together a range of diverse natural history topics
with emphasis on local ecology and broader environmental issues.
Overall the program aims to enlighten us all and our guests. 

 We rounded off 2019 with the successful social on the 10th December.
The newly elected chair Mick Harrop made everyone most welcome and presented Christine Eves with a gift on behalf of the council and members for her contribution as treasurer over the last 7 years.
Christine is passing on this role to Michael Brook.
A special thanks goes to Sarah Flood for organising a challenging but entertaining quiz.
Thanks to all who contributed to the food and nibbles for the evening.

 Reminders below of the first events of 2020.

 In February the talk by Alastair Fitter concerns the threat to the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s first conservation site by developers near York. We hope that by the time the talk is given the site will have been saved! Please see the Calderdale Wildlife blog for many more details.
