By becoming a member of the Swedish Linnaeus Society you receive
several privileges at the same time as you support our activities.
Membership includes the Yearbook, free entry to the Linnaeus Museum
in Uppsala and a 20 per cent discount on all publications on the
Society's booklist on sale from the Society and at the Linnaeus
Since the Society's foundation in 1917, the annual general meeting
and the autumn meeting (May and November respectively) have been
held, usually in Uppsala (Linnaeus Hammarby) and in Stockholm.
At these meetings a lecture is given on a subject relevant to
the Society's activities.
Excursions are arranged for members, following in the footsteps
of Linnaeus' expeditions to Swedish provinces. So far, we have
visited Västergötland, Öland, Gotland, Småland,
Skåne and Bohuslän. We also visit parks and gardens
with an eighteenth century character such as Ängsöö
and Grönsöö by Lake Mälaren.
Each summer the Society arranges walks (Herbationes) along some
of the excursion routes around Uppsala that Linnaeus himself used.
