Natural Sciences Forum

The Natural Sciences Forum exists to ensure that the YNU achieves its charitable objectives of studying and recording the natural history of Yorkshire and disseminating its knowledge to others. 

We welcome to meetings any YNU members and guests wishing to contribute ideas for the development of the YNU and willing to take action to deliver them. Representatives of YNU Sections, VC Divisional Secretaries and Affiliated Societies are encouraged to attend, to ensure that the YNU is meeting their requirements.

The Chairman of the Natural Sciences Forum, Peter Flint, will report the outcomes and recommendations arising from each meeting of the Natural Sciences Forum to the YNU Executive.

The last meeting of the Forum was on on Saturday 5th November at Fountains Abbey in Ripon.  The next meeting will be on Saturday 11th February at St Chad's Parish Centre in Leeds.
