Annual General Meeting

Held on the second Saturday in March, the meeting provides an opportunity for members to ensure that the Union continues to provide the services that they require but, more than that, it is intended to be a pleasant social occasion. It features a talk by the President or by an invited guest speaker on some aspect of natural history and also provides an informal opportunity for members to meet and socialise and to exchange ideas with other members and friends who share their interests or those with other interests that complement their own.

The A.G.M. for 2005 will be held at 2.00 p.m. on Saturday 5 March 2005

Field Excursions

There are currently active sections that are recording vascular plants and bryophytes and lichens. Members may, if they wish, establish further sections.

The New Flora of South Lancashire

The N.W.N.U. is playing a leading role in the preparation of this collaborative publication. It will provide a snapshot of the mosses, liverworts, lichens, macro-fungi and algae, as well as of vascular plants, in the area between the Mersey and the Ribble, at the turn of the century. In doing so, it will provide naturalists, conservationists and planners with an essential means of assessing environmental impact and consequential change in one of the most ecologically diverse parts of Britain. The work is intended, not only for present-day naturalists, but also as a base-line census on which future generations will be able to build.

Further details are available from the Secretary.
