Excursions

During the summer months, the society runs day excursions and longer residential excursions. These field trips are open to members only. (If you would like to join the society, please refer to our Membership page.) All field trip attendees must be familiar with the society's fieldwork code.

If you have any queries regarding the excursions, please email the day excursion secretary or the residential excursion secretary. We look forward to meeting you on the excursions!
