Our Events help Support vulnerable Wildlife

Help us protect Somerset’s Wildlife by Supporting us and our events. Support our events and you could help protect threated species in your local area such as the hedgehog, Otter, Water vole and Bats.

Supported by over 18,000 members, Somerset Wildlife Trust has been protecting vulnerable wildlife through its events and projects for over 50 years.

Sadly, we can only run a limited number of events. We need your help to run more events and get more of the community involved with wildlife.

Trouble finding your way?

Because some of our events and things to do are held in the wilds of Somerset they include a grid reference as a meeting point - post codes are too imprecise. To see the location for the activity on a map go to Street Map and type in the grid reference (e.g. ST456437 no spaces.) If you zoom out you will first see the OS Explorer and Landranger maps which have more detail and then larger scale maps. Go to Street Map now.
