Ringwood Field Naturalists Club Inc.

". . . to further the study of Natural History in all its branches"


Since 1961, the Ringwood Field Naturalists Club Inc. has been providing a friendly informal environment for its members to develop their personal interest in natural history.

The club offers:
  • Monthly meetings - expert speakers, member presentations, photographs, exhibits,
  • Weekend events - usually an all day field trip to a place of natural history interest,
  • Autumn & Spring camp-outs - a full weekend away,
  • Local field-care days - tree planting/weed removal at local sites,
  • A bi-annual Newsletter,
  • An extensive natural history library.
So, whatever your particular interest may be, whether it is enjoying walks in Victoria's wilderness areas, exploring the world of native orchids or simply identifying the birds visiting your garden, the Ringwood Field Naturalists Club is sure to have something to offer.

A great way to learn more about the club is to come along to one of our monthly meetings which are on the second Wednesday of each month.
