Ringwood Field Naturalists Club Inc.

Founded in 1961, the Ringwood Field Naturalists Club provides a friendly & informal forum for people to share and explore their interest in Australian Natural History.

The Club caters to all areas of Natural History by having a varied programme - we don't specialise in just one or two areas of nature. At our monthly meeting, we have presenters giving talks on wide-ranging topics. Our monthly excursions and twice-yearly weekends away are spread across Victoria, giving the opportunity to explore new areas.

Whether it is exploring the world of native orchids, photographing plants and wildlife or simply identifying the birds visiting your garden, the Ringwood Field Naturalists Club is sure to have something to offer.

The Club has:
  • Our monthly meeting - speakers, member's photographs & exhibits,
  • Monthly excursions - day trips on the weekend,
  • Autumn & Spring weekend away - weekends away around Victoria,
  • Field-care days - tree planting/weed removal at local sites,
  • The Whistler - our 6-monthly Newsletter,
  • A large natural history library - available for borrowing.
