La Société Guernesiaise was founded in 1882 to encourage the study of the history, natural history, geography and geology of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the conservation of the Bailiwick’s natural environment and the preservation of its historic buildings and monuments. In many respects, La Société Guernesiaise is similar to the UK Wildlife Trusts. However, its activities extend into many other areas, including history, archaeology and astronomy.
Membership is open to all individuals, companies and schools. All members receive regular newsletters and the annual Transactions to keep them in touch and you will certainly be made most welcome at any meetings, lectures etc, or by individual Sections.
La Société produces three newsletters each year and publishes the Transactions of La Société Guernesiaise annually. This includes the report from council, the accounts and reports from the sections as well as a variety of papers on subjects of local interest. La Société also publishes books and other associated publications which are of local interest.
MEETINGS & LECTURES
As well as meetings organised by individual sections, La Société organises open lectures as well as visits to places of interest in the Bailiwick and to Normandy and Brittany. Details can be found in the newsletter and the front page of this website.
