  2. Guided walks led by knowledgeable members to increase awareness of the natural environment
  3. Arrange talks on subjects of interest to our members
  4. Produce a regular newsletter for members
  5. Maintain records of plant and animal life in order to see how the environment is changing in response to climate change and other pressures
