Because we care !

Welcome to this new season!

We hope you’re all doing well.

The context of the pandemic imposes some restrictions on our activities and our traditional way of conducting our affairs.

For instance, we’ll keep using the ZOOM platform for our next talks until further notice.

We are also implementing a new contactless procedure to register and collect the membership dues. You will be able to fill a membership form and make a bank transfer for the payment. See the new Membership section in the menu for some guidance.

According to the COVID-19 National Response Plan, we must remain cautious and respect the restrictions on outdoor gatherings to 30 people. Since our series of summer outings, we are confident that we can safely organize our field trips, respecting social distancing.

Additionally, this year, we’ll be relying more on our Social Media platforms. We have for instance created a QNHG members-only group to better interact with you.


We look forward to a fun-filled season, with many discoveries.

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.
