Yorkshire Naturalists' Union

1861-2011: Celebrating 150 years of recording the ever-changing flora and fauna of Yorkshire

The Yorkshire Naturalists' Union is an association of amateur and professional naturalists covering a wide range of aspects of natural history. YNU deal with the 'old' county of Yorkshire, as individuals and through our many affiliated societies, many of which are local naturalists' groups.

All are welcome to attend the field meetings, training sessions and conferences throughout the county organised by the YNU (view the Events Calendar on YNU's website).

The YNU publishes three issues of The Naturalist each year, plus an annual bird report. These, together with the annual butterfly and moths report produced by the Yorkshire branch of Butterfly Conservation, are all free to members. YNU also publishes books on natural history subjects from time to time.

Yorkshire Coast Nature has been an official sponsor of YNU's annual bird report since 2010.
