Young Naturalists

The Young Naturalists is a nature club for young people who have an interest in wildlife, plants, nature and natural history and would like to learn more about the natural world from experts and by first-hand experience.

It is part of the WA Naturalists’ Club, which was established in 1924 to encourage the study and protection of the natural environment. Membership gives you a monthly newsletter and a scientific journal as well as the opportunity to attend meetings and excursions.


The organisers are Steve Page, Laurton McGurk & Roz Hart, who you can contact by email:, or via the Club by phone on 9228 2495.
