The not so secret seven

At this time of year many of us are starting to feel the need to get out and about. But the evenings are still dark and it remains rather cold... So, where to go and what to do? The Trust’s seven local groups could well have the answer.

Why not switch off the tv and meet up with other wildlife enthusiasts at indoor meetings  that should provide something of interest to people of all ages.

You do not need to be a member of the Trust to join in – and you can go to more than one of the groups.

Coming up soon will be:
