Aims of the DNFC

 The Dublin Naturalists' Field Club was founded in 1886 and early members included Robert Lloyd Praeger and Nathaniel Colgan. It has the general aim 
of promoting an interest in all branches of natural history.

The Field club activities are  educational and provide opportunities for people to share their interests in, and learn about the natural history of our environment. 

The Club is concerned with the conservation and protection of rare and endangered plants and animals and the protection of sites of scientific interest. 

Its membership, which consists of several hundred people of all ages, includes both amateur and professional naturalists. Interest and enthusiasm are the only qualifications needed.
