Membership of the Club is open to anyone interested in birds and in sympathy with the aims of BirdLife South Africa.
Wits Bird Club
Wits Bird Club looks after local matters, and organises lectures, field outings and other excursions. The central office looks after administrative, national and international matters.
Membership is for a 12-month period from the date of receipt of payment and is renewable annually.
The club welcomes new members, and no particular prior knowledge of birds is necessary.
The Club undertakes outings to which all levels of birders are welcome. Details of these appear in a supplement to each edition of the Bokmakierie, are emailed weekly to members and are loaded as events on our facebook page. Bookings are essential and may be made with Lauraine Leigh, our Club Secretary, Tuesday and Wednesday 09:00-15:00. PHONE (011) 782-7267 or EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org.

Saturday afternoon meetings are held on the third Saturday of each month at 13:45 for 14:00 at the Delta Environmental Centre, Delta Park, Road Number 3, Victory Park, unless otherwise stated.
The Club runs beginners’ courses and other specialist courses each year.
The Club produces a magazine, Bokmakierie, three times a year. This magazine not only provides articles of local interest, but also advises members of outings, courses and lectures. Contributions and advertising are welcome from all members.
