Gloucestershire Naturalists’ Society (GNS) is the natural history recording organisation for Gloucestershire, UK, recording all of the flora and fauna in the county. The society publishes quarterly newsletters, journals, and annual bird reports, and organises lectures and field meetings. The society was formed in 1948 with the aim of promoting an interest in the varied wildlife of the county. At the same time, it assumed the task of recording the county’s flora and fauna. To assist in this, the society appoints and supports county recorders for all aspects of wildlife.
The annual photographic competition was the theme of one of the winter meetings. Members were invited to submit photographs to be exhibited and judged anonymously and independently by Helen & Phil Muggridge, local professional wildlife photographers based in the Forest of Dean. The photographs from the competitions held in 2021 and 2022 are now shown as an exhibition forming part of the celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the founding of the Society in 1948.
This exhibition will be open from the 9th of November during events at the Folk excluding during the steampunk festival until the 27th of January 2024.
