Protecting local wildlife and wild places
Shropshire Wildlife Trust is your local conservation charity. We look after 40 Nature Reserves, inspiring people of all ages through our work with schools, events and volunteering opportunities. With the support of our members we give wildlife a voice.
Wrap up warm and explore our Nature Reserves
During this difficult time, we know how important it is to get outdoors for fresh air, exercise and to immerse yourself in nature.
Our 41 reserves provide a home for wildlife; from dormice and pine martens to important insect species and birds, but they are also there for you to visit and enjoy.
All sites (except Wood Lane) remain open
