After the success of the picnic last year we hope to follow it up again to mark the start of what is sure to be another excellent year of conservation. On Sunday 28th September at 1pm we will meet up by the Clifton Suspension Bridge then walk across to Ashton Court where we will have the picnic full of fun and food.

It is a good way to meet new people, chat and generally have a great time outdoors. Hopefully we get the sunny weather we did before though as a back-up plan we can always head to a nearby pub.

Welcome Fair

Now that September is upon us the cool of autumn is ushering out the summer. Of course this heralds the beginning of a new academic year starting of with a fun, frantic Welcome week!

As always BUCG will be at the Welcome Fair, Friday 26th September, 11am-6pm at the Harbourside. We will be welcoming new and returning members so be sure to stop by for a chat. Whether you are Fresher or just not been a member before, this is a great chance to find out about what we do, sign up to our mailing list if your interested or join right away. Of course if you were a member before don’t forget to rejoin this year!

We will be holding a number of new events at the beginning of term to get the ball rolling again for the year. Details about them will be posted here and sent around the mailing list.

New website

Welcome to the new BUCG website!

Please note that it is still currently under construction.

We now have our own domain of and a new host instead of being part of the University of Bristol website.

This has allowed us to significantly upgrade from a plain old static HTML and CSS website to a dynamic, WordPress powered site. Using WordPress provides a convenient content management system (CMS) and the ability to have more features.

With this change has come a significant visual improvement and a refresh of our content and how it is organised.

You can see what the previous incarnations of the website looked like in the archive section.
