Welcome to Taunton Wildlife Week, part of Somerset Wildlife Trust’s ‘30 Days Wild initiative’, and an annual celebration of our town’s amazing green spaces and wild places, and the stunning wildlife that lives here.  Join Somerset Wildlife Trust and our Taunton Local Area Group for a whole week of nature-based activities, as we explore the rich natural heritage of our county town.  There’s something for all the family, so why not join us, and be part of it!
