Lower Smite Farm group
With so many people living within a mile or two of our nature reserves, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved with us.
Whether you're part of a community group and would like to have a guided walk or talk about the charity or are a teacher at a school and would like to learn about habitats and wildlife, please get in touch.
A two-year project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund has enabled us to engage local people with seven of our nature reserves. As part of the project, we've produced resources for children, adults and complete nature novices, we've engaged hundreds of people of all ages living within 5 minutes' walk of a nature reserve and gained new volunteers who are now helping wildlife on their doorstep!
We've helped local people to enjoy and appreciate our reserves and the environment around them.
At Feckenham Wylde Moor nature reserve in the village of Feckenham, local children have had the opportunity to explore the meadows and have a go at bird spotting.
Children from local schools, Beaver, Brownie and Cub groups in Kidderminster have gone on adventures to spot wildlife at the important heathland reserve, The Devil’s Spittleful.
Walking for Health groups across the county have discovered their nearby nature reserves with our guided health walks. The reserves they've visited include Lower Smite Farm, Upton Warren, The Devil's Spittleful and Droitwich Community Woods.
Primary schools in Castlemorton and Upton upon Severn have learnt how to survey the habitats in their school grounds and own gardens, with Castlemorton Primary School even creating their own wildflower meadow beside the school!
By holding open afternoons and illustrated talks, local residents and community groups have enjoyed hearing about the history and development of the reserves as well as learning about their local wildlife species.
