The  South Essex Natural History Society is
Registered Charity 231981
The Society was formed in 1934 as a direct result of the move to have Hadleigh Great Wood preserved as a nature reserve for the enjoyment of future generations.
The AIMS are to further the study and conservation of the flora and fauna, particularly in South Essex, and to interact with the community to create an awareness of the importance and benefit the public of local wildlife.The Society takes an active interest in local affairs relating to natural history.  It holds meetings both indoors in Southend and outdoors to which the general public are invited.

If we are to continue to protect our natural heritage we need your support. Membership is open to anyone interested in natural history or who wishes to learn more.
