Arnside & District Natural History Society
The AONB is home to an amazing diversity of species, many of which are uncommon in a national or international context but thrive within the unique mosaic of habitats here.
The Arnside & District Natural History Society, formed in the 1960s, celebrates the area’s wonderful wildlife by running an extensive programme of field visits and talks. Many of its members also collect valuable records on birds, mammals and other vertebrates, botany and insects which are then shared to help map and analyse natural history sightings across the country.
New members and visitors are welcome.
The A&DNHS maintain a list of plant records for the area – please find the most recent spreadsheets here:
