At the beginning of the Victorian era, the majority of scientists consisted of amateur scholars, who observed and recorded everyday phenomena. These hobbyists often compiled vast private collections of specimens, which they or other scientists would then catalog. Later in the century, amateurs and trained scientists would band together to form scientific societies that served to provide a forum for discussion of current observations and theories. It was because of these groups of people that the Natural History Society of Maryland was formed. And it is because of you incredible naturalists that we are able to continue.

We thank you for your continued dedication and support in the Natural History Society of Maryland’s work to preserve the natural world, and inspire exploration and stewardship in Marylanders of all ages. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
