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 last meeting of the Forum was on Saturday 9th November 2019 at Whitby Museum, Whitby.  The next meeting will be held before the AGM in Settle on 10th October 2020.
