Malvern local group

The Malvern HillsThe Malvern Hills

Welcome! We’re a lively and active group discovering and enjoying wildlife around the beautiful Malvern Hills.

Our area covers Malvern, Upton upon Severn and surrounding villages. All our meetings and activities are open to non-members. More details of these as well as news and other information are on our own Malvern group website.

We really look forward to meeting you – you’ll find us to be a warm and friendly group who are very enthusiastic about wildlife conservation in our area.

Meetings and Events

Our popular indoor meetings  normally consist of an illustrated talk on a wildlife or landscape topic.

• Where: Lyttelton Rooms, Church Street, Great Malvern
• Time: 7.30pm
• Admission: £2.50
• Refreshments available
• Bird food available for sale
• Non-members always welcome

We also organise outdoor meetings throughout the year. These include walks close to home and further afield to special areas of wildlife interest, often accompanied by enthusiastic and expert naturalists.

See our calendar or download the local group what's on guide for more information.

You can read our winter newsletter for more information.

Get involved

Malvern local group membes on guided walkFundraising and publicising the Trust’s work are two important roles for us; we have stalls at local events and collection days at supermarkets.

We’re always delighted to hear from anyone willing to help. Perhaps you could take photos for our displays, rattle a tin, make a cake, hold a coffee morning, provide a raffle prize or help in some other way? We’re always keen to hear new ideas.

Your local nature reserve

The Knapp and Papermill nature reserve at Alfrick Pound is perhaps the most special of the many reserves in our area. Open nearly all year, it has a diverse range of habitats along the picturesque Leigh Brook; bluebell woods, wildflower-rich grassland, a traditional orchard and ponds.

We help with regular events including guided walks, children’s nature trails and pond dipping.

For those keen on more active volunteering, weekday working parties are held through the winter months. No practical experience is required as guidance is given. New volunteers are always made very welcome.

For information about times and who to contact, visit our volunteering page or the Trust's volunteering opportunities pages.

Recent sightings

We’d love to know if you’ve spotted anything exciting in your local area. You can leave a message in the guestbook on our website.  For more information about recording sightings of wildlife visit the website of the Worcestershire Biological Records Centre.
