BirdLife SA

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.

New Members

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.

OUTINGS

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 witsbc@mweb.co.za.
