SELBORNE SOCIETY INVITATION TO MEMBERS
On 6th June the Selborne Society (from Perivale, Middlesex) will be having a coach excursion to our area.  The morning will feature a walk round the Devil’s Punchbowl, Hindhead, and will include looking for the Punchbowl’s particularly interesting mosses and liverworts.  Meet at the Visitor Centre at l1.00 a.m.   After lunch the group will spend the afternoon at the Haslemere Museum and grounds.
They would like to welcome HNHS members to either morning or afternoon events so please let us know at info@haslemerenaturalhistorysociety.org.uk if you would like to come.

The Selborne Society was founded three years before HNHS as a national body for naturalists in memory of Gilbert White, “the Naturalist of Selborne”.   The Society’s nature reserve, Bluebell Wood, is pictured in the Museum’s Natural History Gallery.
