The Society is dedicated to the conservation and improvement of the River Foss over a distance of approximately 28 miles. This includes getting down and dirty – yes, we go litter picking and pulling up Himalayan Balsam. This helps to keep both problems under control. You do not have to be a member to join in this fun, so what do you get for your membership?

Our members receive a beautifully produced newsletter four times a year. This contains forthcoming activities and reviews of those just completed, along with articles of general interest.  An electronic version is also available. We have a full programme of walks, also a number of visits and outings. Periodically you will receive by email, a reminder of forthcoming events.  Check these out on our website and then join us so that you can participate. Members have priority in booking events with restricted numbers.

Go on, join us, you know you want to!
