The Wexford Naturalists' Field Club was founded in October 2004 aided by a generous start-up grant from the Heritage Council, Ireland. The informative club caters for all levels of interest in the natural history of county Wexford and continues to flourish with an increasing number of keen members.
Unless otherwise stated, an indoor lecture is held at 8pm on the first Thursday of each month in the Pumphouse at the Wexford Wildfowl Reserve and an outdoor field trip is organised on the second Saturday of each month. Details of these events are set out on the annual printed programme, available from the Secretary of the club, and are also posted on the website. The content and format of each lecture and field trip varies and intend to be as entertaining and informative as possible
