La Société Guernesiaise was founded in 1882 to encourage the study of the history, natural history, geography and geology of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the conservation of the Bailiwick’s natural environment and the preservation of its historic buildings and monuments. 125 years later, this is as much true as it was then and the Société is the second largest landowner after the States of Guernsey and is very active in promoting, conserving and studying all aspects of island life.
