Earth Sciences

We interpret Earth Sciences very widely. It is anything connected with the Earth, so can include Natural History, Ecology, Planetary Science, as well as the usual stuff like Geology, Climatology and what we used to call Geography when we went to school.
We like to wander round our subject, and wander round the landscape!
Our meetings are usually on the second Thursday afternoon of the month. Outdoor trips are as indicated.
