About the Society

The Altrincham and District Natural History Society provides a focus for natural history activities in the Altrincham area. Meetings are held fortnightly throughout the year, with evening walks in summer and illustrated talks in winter. Additional whole day events are organised periodically.

A recorder's report is produced annually, documenting and illustrating sites visited and flora and fauna seen.

The society supports other wildlife and conservation groups, and regularly makes donations to local natural history projects. We are active in recording and observing many of the sites visited by the society over its past years, and we look forward to many more years of natural history, learning, making friendships and enjoying the countryside. Specialist knowledge is not important, but a keen interest and love of the countryside is vital.


Membership of the society is on an annual basis, with subscriptions due on 1st January. Subscriptions are 12 for adults and 3 for juniors up to 18 years old. Entrance charges, including refreshments, are 1.50 for members and 3.00. for guests. This will rise to 2.00 for members and 3.50 for visitors from 8th September 2015.
