Mission Statement
The Essex Field Club aims to develop and use its knowledge and expertise to help and encourage the people and organisations of Essex to enjoy, understand, study and record Essex natural history. (Natural history includes fauna, flora, geology and lithic archaeology)

The objects of the Club shall be:
  1. To study and record the natural history of the County of Essex, for the education and benefit of the general public.  (Essex is defined here as the total of the two Watsonian Vice-counties link of North Essex and South Essex.)
  2. To promote environmental education through meetings, the publication of a journal, newsletters, special guides, occasional papers and through the website.
  3. To encourage and support the maintenance of an up-to-date record of all local sites relating to the natural history of Essex.
  4. To promote interest in the natural environment generally and to liaise with other natural history societies and conservation bodies in or around Essex.
  5. To make data and historical material available, where appropriate, for the purposes of conservation, research, monitoring, education and general information.
