The Society's aims are "To promote and foster the study of all branches of natural history and by observation, research and record-keeping to add to the existing knowledge of these sciences both in Wharfedale in particular and in the world at large."

Wharfedale, for the purpose of our Society, is "The watershed of the River Wharfe to Rougement Carr." Rougement Carr is a small wood on the north bank of the Wharfe, near Weeton.

It's a challenging brief, even in a comparatively small area such as this. To meet it, the Society runs winter lectures, carries out conservation work, advises landowners on conservation management, manages its own reserves and arranges walks and visits to sites of natural history interest.
