Branches

Rob Jordan/2020Vision

Shropshire Wildlife Trust has local branches all around the county. They are at the heart of what we do, working within local communities to spread our message. 

Local branches are involved with various activities, such as surveys and practical work parties and often run their own projects. They also organise walks and talks to inspire people about Shropshire's wildlife. 

For a full list of local events please visit our whats on pages. 

To find out more, or to get in touch with your local branch contact, a full list can be found below. If you join as a member you will be allocated to your local branch and will receive regular updates from them (if you opt in).
