Abstract

Glass slides of the Bristol Naturalists' Society

Biographical / Historical

The Bristol Naturalists' Society was founded in 1862. It aims to stimulate a greater awareness of natural history and geology in the Bristol area. From its early foundation and into the twentieth century members of the Society published detailed summaries of the geology of the region and its plant life, its birds, its insects, and the wildlife of the shores and estuaries. Presidents of the Society have included geologist William Sanders and Professor Conwy Lloyd Morgan.
