In The Community

Get involved with helping out in the community and enjoy seeing what your efforts achieve


Watch group assistants

Watch is the junior membership to the Wildlife Trusts and as part of this, local watch groups have been set up to nurture an understanding and appreciation of wildlife through environmentally themed activities.

Wildlife Watch local groups are run entirely by our trained volunteers. They are open to all members of Wildlife Watch, although children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.

The Watch groups meet once a month, either in the evening or on a weekend for two hours.

We already have three established groups in the Stroud, Newent and Cheltenham areas.
