Events

RSPB York Local Group run at least two events every month of the year. From September to May we have indoor meetings (afternoon and evening) with a speaker. These talks range from local sites and birds to exotic and remote parts of the world. Every month of the year we organise an outing by car or coach to a nature reserve in our region and/or a walk in the York area. There is an annual trip away to a UK or international destination. Everyone is welcome to join in our events.
