Description

South Wales News’ article 'Cardiff Naturalists' Society' on the occasion of its Diamond Jubilee. The newspaper writes of its success and well -earned respect and admiration from Cardiff citizens. "Throughout its long career it has been fortunate in commanding the support of some of our most gifted citizens, who have contributed to its research and educational activities much time and well-conceived effort." It speaks of the value of the society and the wonder of educational aspects, teaching arts and sciences to everyone, and the members who have contributed greatly to its research. "...the society has placed our whole community under a debt of gratitude and appreciation."

The Cardiff Naturalists' Society was established in 1867 in Cardiff, Glamorgan, on the initiative of Robert Drane, F.L.S. (1833-1914). The society is the longest established wildlife organisation in the area and promotes the study of natural history, geology and the natural sciences. The Society held many lectures and talks on a variety of topics, as well as field trips and exhibitions. They have strong links with the National Museum Wales in Cardiff, which holds a large collection of volumes created by the Naturalists. The society is still active today and holds a yearly programme.
