Wild About Tamworth

butterflyThis project between Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and Tamworth Borough Council aims to improve our wild spaces. Sites are designated as Local Nature Reserves (LNRs) and community conservation groups are set up to manage the sites.

Take a look at the Trust's leaflet on our wild spaces and the What's On flyer Jan to June 2017 to find out more about what is happening on each site, including task days, events, walks and talks.

Hodge Lane, Amington: Local volunteers meet on the last Sunday in the month to carry out management work.

Kettlebrook: Stretches from Glascote to Wilnecote and runs through Belgrave. There are two groups which meet here - Friends of the Lakes (Belgrave and Stonydelph) who meet on the first Sunday of the month and the Wilnecote Wildlife Conservation Group who meet on the last Saturday.

The Friends of Warwickshire Moor, Bolehall: residents meet on the third Sunday of every month.

Tameside Wildlife Conservation Group: Manages Tameside Nature Reserve in Fazeley. Meets on the second Sunday of every month.
