In addition to field meetings and indoor meetings, members of the Society receive:

  • the quarterly newsletter, containing articles on wildlife matters as well as news about the Society and its events;
  • a free copy of The Gloucestershire Bird Report when published to those who request it;
  • free copies of The Gloucestershire Naturalist which contains more scientific articles on Gloucestershire wildlife. Special editions will be supplied free to those who request them.

GNS members also have free access to the Society’s extensive library which is held at Hartpury College.

From 1 st January 2022 GNS will as far as possible, be delivering digital PDF copies of GNS News and The Gloucestershire Naturalist rather than printed paper versions. We have to properly manage our costs and reduce our carbon footprint.
