Bath Natural History Society Exhibition
Mon 11 October - Mon 25 October
Join us at Queen Square for a special exhibition to celebrate eighty years of the Bath Natural History Society, otherwise known as Bath Nats.
From the Bath Nats website
You might be surprised and inspired by the variety of life that can be found almost anywhere in and around Bath, with a little knowledge of where to look, how to look and what to look for. Over the past years some of our members have regularly visited the tiny cemetery at Smallcombe to find out what lives there. The results have been astonishing. So far they’ve seen over 700 species including 55 kinds of moths, many other insects, over 44 common bird species, around 144 kinds of flowering plants including some quite rare species, and over 100 species of lichens. All this occurs within a short walk from the city centre. The canal too is rich in species. Around 15 dragonfly species can be seen along the towpath between Bath and Bradford on Avon. Kingfishers can frequently be seen and if you are lucky you might even see an otter on the canal or along the River Avon.
The exhibition is a retrospective of the Society’s activities over eighty years, with photographs illustrating changes to the local wildlife during that time.
Open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm – admission free, donations welcome.
