Join and support us

Join over 36,000 members to get involved with activities, visit over 100 nature reserves and directly contribute to safeguarding vulnerable local wildlife across more than 4000 hectares of land.

Delivering conservation programmes to ensure the next generation are able to enjoy the wildlife-rich landscapes we do today is an enormous undertaking. We rely heavily on membership to generate the funds we need to do this. We cannot safeguard precious habitats and vulnerable wildlife in our three counties without the support of those who live and work around them.
