What's on

Get closer to wildlife!

We believe there is no better way to learn about wildlife than to experience it first hand. The Trust holds hundreds of wild events throughout the year. Our events are open to everyone and our event leaders love to share their enthusiasm for Gloucestershire’s landscape and wildlife. So no matter what your age or interest there is a wild event for you.

Come to a talk, join us for a walk around a nature reserve and spot wild flowers, glow worms or bats; learn a new skill at one of our bush craft, photography, otter holt building or natural Christmas decorations workshops.  Browse below for our up and coming events.

Each month we'll give you some great places to go, fun things to do and tips on what you can do for wildlife in your area. Don't forget to sign up for our e-news, follow us on Facebook or Twitter and tell us what wildlife you've seen.
