Restore Somerset’s nature

what we do

Restore Somerset's Nature

Draycott Sleights - Jeff Bevan

Protect and restore

We carry out a range of conservation activities across the county with the help of volunteers and the support of members. We look after some of Somerset's most iconic landscapes, safeguard the future of our nature reserves and help protect and restore key habitats and species. 

However, despite this, biodiversity is in decline. Whilst we work with a wide range of partners and landowners already, we know that for nature to recover in Somerset we must do more and faster. How can you help restore Somerset's nature?

We have over 50 years experience and invaluable help from volunteers, members and supporters but despite that, nature is still declining.

Through our living landscapes and nature recovery networks programme we are determined to turn the corner for nature in Somerset.


We can't do it without you!

We look after over 1700 hectares of land across the county 24/7/365. Fancy giving us a hand?
