The Orange Field Naturalist and Conservation Society Inc. (OFNCS) is a voluntary, not for profit incorporated association. The society aims to 

foster interest in and enjoyment of all aspects of natural history by means of field studies and excursions, informative presentations at monthly meetings and through newsletters and our website. We encourage participation in the conservation of the environment for the benefit of the people of Orange now and into the future through representations to the media and all levels of government on issues of both local and wider significance.

The society welcomes new members of any age and background. No natural history experience needed.
