Welcome to Carlisle Natural History Society…

We aim to promote the appreciation, study and documentation of the wildlife and natural environment of Cumbria and its environs; and to provide a forum for naturalists with an interest in Cumbrian wildlife.

Anyone with an interest in wildlife can join the Society.

We regularly meet in the Tullie House lecture theatre in the winter and in the field in the summer and welcome guests. Please see our latest programme.

If you are on Facebook, why not like us on our public Facebook Page or if you are a twitter user you can find us @CarlisleNats.
