Our local groups are a great way to get involved and meet other people. Some are based around local reserves, and our new South Birmingham group concentrates on walks and talks. More are coming soon...
As well as volunteering, events and activities, The Wildlife Trust also runs some local groups in the area, and we’re planning more. We’re always looking for enthusiastic people to get involved locally. Would you like to find out more? Read on…
Friends of Hill Hook Nature Reserve
Our Hill Hook group is incredibly active. With regular volunteering days supported by The Trust they have transformed the reserve, and they also run other events. They’ve been incredibly successful fundraisers too, and many of the improvements to the site such as the walkways and bridges would not have been possible without their enthusiasm.
Hill Hook is in the north of Sutton Coldfield. Would you like to become a member, or find out more? Contact the Friends of Hill Hook Local Nature Reserve through email@example.com. You can see their dedicated website here.
Friends of Moseley Bog & Joy’s Wood Nature Reserve
Although newly formed, this group has built upon previous groups and years of volunteering and campaigning. It was community action that saved the reserve from the developers, and was one of the catalysts for the formation of the Urban Wildlife Group which became The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country.
South Birmingham Local Group
In South Birmingham there’s a different sort of group, focussed around talks, walks and activities. Starting October 2014, on the 2nd Friday of each month, our South Birmingham group will meet regularly.
Over the winter there will be a programme of talks taking place at Dame Elizabeth Hall, Bournville, and over the summer there’ll be a range of walks and visits across South Birmingham.
For children there is also Wildlife Watch. We've got one group at the moment, but are hoping for more.
For up-to-date activities for all our local groups visit our What's On page.
We’re hoping to have a few new groups join the fold soon. Would you be interested in helping us set the group up, arranging activities, or getting involved? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
