What will the next year hold?

By renewing your NHSN membership, you open up a world of possibilities over the year ahead. You could:

  • Explore Gosforth Nature Reserve, the North East’s longest-running nature reserve and a haven for wildlife.
  • Be inspired by talks, videos, articles and publications sharing the secrets of North East nature.
  • Discover new places, friends and opportunities through members’ exclusive events and education courses.
  • Make a difference by supporting conservation, research, learning and youth engagement across the North East.

Thank you for renewing

Your support makes a world of difference for North East nature. Without it, the research, conservation and education carried out by NHSN volunteers would not be possible. For that, we can’t thank you enough.

For almost 200 years, the passion and support of NHSN members like you has shaped the fortunes of nature in the North East. Imagine what we could achieve together over 200 more?

Your support made an impact this year. During a difficult year, you provided opportunities for people of all ages, inspired wonder and enabled conservation and research across the North East.
