Covid-19: In March 2020 the Hull Natural History Society decided to suspend indoor meetings and field trips until further notice.

The revised government guidance of July 4th allows gatherings of up to six people outdoors, as long as social distancing guidelines are followed. We have therefore decided to recommence our programme of field meetings. If more than six people turn up for a meeting, we will split into separate groups of a maximum of six people. There will still be a small risk of infection and so you must decide, based on your personal circumstances, whether you wish to attend.
