Butterflies, bats, fowl, flora, fungi: all on the agenda ... We welcome new members, and non-members are welcome at our events.'

These are typically fairly close to Alton and cover a wide range of interests including Birds, Butterflies, Dragonflies, Flowers and Botany, Fungi ... If you are interested in joining then come along to any indoor or outdoor meeting without obligation.'
