Shropshire Wildlife Trust is an independent, autonomous charity with its own trustees. It is also part of The Wildlife Trusts, the largest grouping of charitable organisations in the United Kingdom concerned with the conservation of the whole of the UK's natural world.

We have over 40 members of staff; both full and part-time. Some 400 volunteers help carry out the work of the Trust, keeping nature reserves in shape, gardening, running local branches of the Trust, helping in the office and acting as trustees.

The Trust is based in Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury. We are open to visitors from Monday - Saturday, 10am - 4.30pm. Here you can find out more about our work, explore the garden and browse in the shop.
