Exploring, recording & conserving nature in Rutland

The Rutland Natural History Society was founded in 1965.

It is a registered charity and membership organisation with these objectives:

To further the cause of Natural History;


To study, record and help preserve Rutland’s wildlife, in particular;


To meet and exchange information with other bodies, and to encourage all ages to take an interest in wildlife and its conservation.

RNHS Members are a group of people with a shared interest in the wildlife of our county and beyond.  There are currently around 200 members.  Recording wildlife has always been a key part of the Society’s activities as well as holding field trips throughout the year and stimulating talks in the winter months.

Everyone is welcome whether you are a beginner wishing to deepen your understanding of the natural world or an expert who can contribute to our recording community.
