About the Field Naturalists' Club of Victoria
Members of the Field Naturalists' Club of Victoria, formed in 1880, were nature activists and enthusiasts. From worms to eagles, fossils to flowers, and from shore-dwelling amoeba to mountain-peak-bagging forests, the entire spectrum of the natural world inspired their scientific curiosity.
Historic newspapers report in fascinating detail on FNCV's excursions to capture the fairy-like volvox and dragonfly larvae at Brighton ponds; their advice to the Museum on appropriate curatorship of specimens; their compilation of zoological and botanical charts; their generous assistance to member organisations seeking legal protection for endangered birds and native trees; their instructional 'lantern lectures' for members; and extensive reports in their club journal, the Naturalist.
