The Wildlife Trust BCN was founded by volunteers devoted to protecting the wildlife and wild places of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Northamptonshire. We have always been an organisation guided by the voluntary principle. Today we have over 1,000 volunteers helping the Trust in all manner of ways and we could not operate without them. We cannot say thank you enough!
