A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Area Society: Carmarthenshire

'Founded in 1905 as a "field club" and remains so to this day with its active programme of monthly meetings comprising field days in the summer and a winter programme of lectures, plus an annual whole day programme of keynote talks, each year on a different theme.'

'Exists to serve anyone interested in genealogy, heraldry, family history or local history in the three Welsh counties of Cardiganshire (Ceredigion), Carmarthenshire (Sir Gaerfyrddin) and Pembrokeshire (Sir Benfro) ... Each Branch organises regular meetings ... All members of the Society and the public are invited to attend for which there is no charge. Members of the public are particularly welcome.'

Member of the Welsh Beekeepers' Association Grouping

'Formed in 1973 to promote and advance the study of the countryside, including all aspects of nature, to encourage and actively support the protection of wildlife and the preservation of natural beauty.  The Society also has a remit to establish, own and maintain conservation areas, sanctuaries and nature reserves and owns a part of Ffrwd Fen at Pembrey. It also exists to facilitate the exchange of information among members by, amongst other things, the organisation of field meetings, lectures, film shows, and exhibitions and to publish the results of the work of members. These events are an excellent opportunity to meet other naturalists of all abilities and to visit places of wildlife interest.'

'Nature is not only beautiful but it is also fundamental to our lives. We can’t survive without it, but Wales’s natural environment is in decline and so are the benefits that it delivers. The LNP Cymru project will build a nature recovery network to help reverse this, engaging people and communities, businesses and decision-makers in both practical action and strategic planning for a healthy, resilient and nature-rich Wales.'

'An autonomous society, established to promote a better understanding of orchid biology, conservation and cultivation. It does this by organizing its very own annual Welsh Orchid Festival and monthly talks. A series of field trips and visits to external sites and organisations are also part of our yearly programme.'

'Founded in 1943, WBKA is the umbrella organisation for 19 local associations across Wales. Representatives of these 19 associations, and specialist members, form the WBKA Council which meets three times a year.'
