Insect Events in Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire

The Society has a number of active members who organise and run events on a regular basis a number of which are listed below.

Additionally individuals or groups of members hold their own field trips, recording events and activities throughout the year. Some of these are often on the spur of the moment, or with only a couple of days notice. These event details, where possible, will be advertised on this web site so check this page often.

If you wish to attend an event it is your responsibility to get in contact with the event leader.

Please remember that events are subject to change and are dependant on the weather so it is essential that you check this website often and confirm with the organiser that the event is going ahead, especially if the weather is bad. Also remember to bring suitable footwear, clothing, and equipment (such as torches) to events.

All individuals attending an event should ensure that they have read and understood the Risk Assessment document. The purpose of this document is to highlight the risks and hazards which may be encountered during an event together with actions for mitigation.

The leader, organiser or nominated contact of a field meeting must ensure participants are aware of this document prior to the event taking place. Members inviting non-members to an event should ensure that they are also aware of the Risk Assessment document and understand it.

If you have an appropriate event for inclusion on this website, please contact the Meetings Secretary Darren Clarke Email:
