    The Dirty Weekenders have been conservationing since 1991.

    We meet up nearly every Sunday inside Pleasance Courtyard, at 10am and take various forms of transport to various park sites such as Dalkieth and Roslin Glen. We'll provide you with transport in the form of bus tickets and/or minibus seats and constitutionally mandated sandwhiches and biscuits. You provide stout footwear, suitable clothing and water. 

    We also meet up on Thrusdays, in the Auld Hoose pub, from 9pm, as well as organising various social events throughout the semester. Contact us at edinburghdirtyweekenders@gmail.com to find out what events we've been planning, or to find out anything else!

    Interested? Your first project is free! And so are all the others. The Dirty Weekenders operate on a no-commitment basis. There is no membership and no attendance minimum. Just show up to Pleasance Courtyard at 10 a.m.on whatever Sunday you feel like, and you're free to join! 

    Fig. 2: Members are often identified by clothing decorated with semi-aquatic rodents.



    Around twice a semester, the society goes on a weekend long project, to some beautiful and exciting places. These usually go from a Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, and generally cost around £20 per person. Emails get sent out ahead of time, and these are often very popular, so reply sharpish! If you're somewhat new to the society these are a great way to get to know the rest of the members.
