Local Branch Groups

Our Local Branch Groups

Our local branch groups offer people a chance to engage with wildlife within their local community in a social setting. Most branches run a programme of regular talks and walks while some are also involved in practical conservation projects. Groups also help us to fundraise, often for projects at their local nature reserves.

If you are interested in starting up a local branch for your area, please contact Annderley Hill at a.hill@herefordshirewt.co.uk
