Programme for 2015 see below for the indoor and outdoor meetings respectively.
The Society was formed on 2nd December 1963 and is based on the administrative district of Ryedale in North Yorkshire. It is responsible for almost 1200 one-kilometre squares with Kirkbymoorside at an approximate centre. Our area is roughly defined by the northern watershed running from Black Hambleton to Saltersgate; the Whitby to Thornton-le-Dale road to the east and the drove road along the edge of the Hambleton Hills to the west. Our southern boundary is less easy to describe but generally includes the Howardian Hills as far as Malton and the Kirkham Gorge, following the 70 grid line.
There are approximately 60 members and the Society has seven indoor meetings, usually
on the third Tuesday of the month in Kirkbymoorside, and at least four outdoor
trips during the year. New members are always welcome (please contact the Secretary, Pauline Popely, or just come to one of our meetings).
The subscription for 2015 is £10 per single member, £15 per family.
We publish Newsletters, annually in recent years. Dr. Michael Thompson has recently donated two bound volumes of the newsletters 1998-2004 and 2005-2008 to the archives of the Ryedale Folk Museum. They are now available for reading in Ryedale Folk Museum library. We would like to thank Michael for this generous donation.
We are affiliated to the Yorkshire Naturalists Union (YNU), and have a list of YNU Field Excursions.
