Dear fellow members,

We hope you’re all doing well.

With the sharp increase in the number of cases registered in January, the authorities have implemented new restrictions on the number of people allowed for outside gatherings. From now on, only 15 members would be allowed to participate in the outings. However, with the current rate of contamination, we're not comfortable promoting gatherings at all.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we must stay safe.

However, we encourage you to go out and explore nature safely, with your family, or a few friends, within your bubble, respecting social distancing and wearing masks.

The weather is perfect for hiking, beachcombing at low tide, bird watching, camping. And there is a lot to see, as we are slowly moving toward Spring and the warmer months.

You could also share your pictures and observations on social media, through our groups on Facebook, or you can also tag us @qnhg_official.

We hope to resume our outings as soon as possible.

Counting on your understanding,

Thierry Lesales

On behalf of the Steering Committee.

Our Activities

We organize monthly talks and field trips

Monthly Talks

Experts in their fields give us an overview on various topics related to Qatar or the Gulf region . Talks offer a great opportunity to learn more about our natural and cultural environment.

Rambles & Citizen Science

Field trips or ramble are usually connected to the topic of the monthly talks. But there are also plenty of opportunities to go out, explore and make a useful contribution.


A collection of hard to find reading materials is available for members to borrow. Another way of exploring the nature, history and culture of Qatar and beyond.
