Recording Yorkshire's wildlife for over 150 years.

The Yorkshire Naturalists' Union is devoted to studying and recording Yorkshire's flora and fauna.  We are an association of amateur and professional naturalists covering a wide range of aspects of natural history.  We are one of the country's oldest wildlife organisations, having celebrated our 150th anniversary in 2011.

The YNU is seeking an Honorary Treasurer, and would love to hear from anyone who might be interested in the role and would like an informal chat about what is involved.  You can find more information here.

The latest Yorkshire Bird Report has recently been published!  For more information and to order your copy, click here.
