NHSN has been publishing books and journals about the natural history of the North East for nearly 200 years.

The Northumbrian Naturalist is the only journal in the region to publish papers on the local fauna, flora and geology. This series includes Coastal Wildlife, an annual report of the wildlife observed at various sites along the Northumberland Coast.

We also publish a triannual magazine, North East Nature, which keeps our members up-to-date with the latest natural history news from across the region.
