The Club seeks to promote an interest in all branches of Natural History and to assist members in finding out about the living things that they see in the countryside around them. The present membership includes those who have particular interests in birds, insects, slugs and snails, lichens, fungi, flowering plants and mosses and liverworts. Members with interests in other fields would be very welcome.
In spring and summer there are evening, half-day and whole-day visits to investigate the natural history of a particular area. During the winter months there is a series of monthly meetings that are held at the Leeds University Centre, Harrow Road, Middlesbrough. A meeting usually takes the form of a lecture given by a club member or visiting speaker. The annual subscription is £5.
Any person interested in joining the Cleveland Naturalists Field Club should send their subscription to the Membership Secretary. Potential members are welcome to our field meetings listed at the back of this issue.
Annual subscriptions are due on the 1st January each year.
(Adult £5.00. Students under 18 yrs. £1.00)
Members are entitled to attend meetings of:
Yorkshire Naturalists' Union Northern Naturalists' Union
Cleveland Wildlife Trust The Ramblers' Association.
The Club is affiliated to these organizations.
This is the seventh issue of the new Proceedings. The site chosen for specific comment this year was Marton West Beck and Sandy Flatts. In actual fact our Record of Proceedings seems to show our interests have been oriented more towards other sites visited this year. A particular site is chosen each year to help to focus member’s interests but the Proceedings are a record of those things that which we actually find to be of interest during the year. Consequently we should expect that our planned sites for recording may not turn out to be the sites most extensively worked at the end of the year.The site chosen for the next Proceedings is the fields immediately North of the railway at Billingham Beck. Any records for this site will be gratefully accepted for inclusion.
