Are you looking for an engaging speaker for your group?

If you are looking for a talk from a representative of the Trust, please get in touch.  Please bear in mind that we receive a high number of requests for our speakers and we are not able to fulfill every one.  We will work with you to arrange a speaker but are often not able to book in a talk more than three months in advance.

We can offer talks about wildlife for groups from 15 to over 100 people of all ages and levels of wildlife knowledge.  Our talks cover our work and nature reserves, Worcestershire's wildlife and garden wildlife and birds.

Talks last between 45 minutes and an hour to suit your group and cost £50 for 2019 dates, inclusive of travel expenses.

For bookings and enquiries please email us or call 01905 754919.

For information about speakers from outside the Trust who give talks on wildlife-related themes, you can download our speakers' directory
