Market Bosworth & District Natural History Society
The Market Bosworth & District Natural History Society is a group of very active local natural history enthusiasts.
The Society enjoys a comprehensive programme of both indoor and outdoor meetings. In addition the Society also manages a wildflower meadow on Bosworth Park.
The Society was formed in January 1976 by twenty two local natural history enthusiasts. During the inaugural meeting it was agreed that the aims of the Society should be:-
• To cover every aspect of natural history, and cater for all interests.
• To hold monthly indoor meetings, and outdoor meetings wherever possible.
• To make detailed investigations, with records, of particular sites.
During the intervening years the Society has held closely to these aims and has grown to a current membership of around seventy.
