Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire
Entomological Society


Joining The Society

Membership of the Society is open to all those interested in insects, beginner or expert. Membership of the Society offers:

Indoor meetings, at the Visitor Centre, Shipley Country Park, near Heanor are held periodically. These meetings are informative and pleasant social occasions. They include talks by visiting lecturers and members, slide shows and discussion evenings.

The Sociey has one of the busiest event calendars in the UK. Field meetings are held usually between May and September, in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. These stimulate site recording and provide an opportunity to learn field techniques and identification skills. Trips to insect related events throughout the UK are also organised.

The society publishes a colour newsletter containing current insect news. A separate Journal is also produced containing information about recording methods, hints and tips, recording schemes and book reviews. It also features reports by Recording Officers of notable records and observations of most insect orders.

Advice on identification and other subjects is available.
