The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country

We have been protecting wildlife, restoring wild spaces and inspiring people for nature's recovery for 40 years as the UK's first 'urban' Wildlife Trust in 1980. We've created and restored hundreds of sites across Birmingham and the Black Country from rivers, meadows and woodlands. Our environmental education centres provide thousands of children with access to nature every year.
