Information about Paisley Natural History society

Paisley Natural History society was formed in the early 1970’s by local naturalists and is still going strong. The aims of the society are simple:
1. To encourage the study of natural history in Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde.
2. To support the conservation of wildlife and habitats; and
3. To maintain links with the Natural History department of Paisley Museum.

Regular indoor meetings are held in Paisley Museum on Thursday evenings during the winter months covering a variety of natural history topics from butterflies and birds to fungi and fossils and outings are organised during the summer months visiting sites throughout Scotland.

You don’t need to be a member to come along to the talks, they are open to anyone with an interest in natural history.

Copies of the winter talks programme can be obtained from Paisley Museum and the talks are also listed on the Renfrewshire Council website.
