Wiltshire Wildlife Trust

Wiltshire Wildlife Trust has existed since the 60s with the aim of reconnecting people with their local wildlife and landscape. There are 37 reserves throughout the county which people can visit to just enjoy and experience nature, or attend one of the many family-friendly events.

‘The chalk downland of Wiltshire is an extremely rare ecosystem that supports a wide variety of wildlife. Projects include creating meadows to increase the wild flower population, which in turn supports other wildlife, and restoring rivers and waterways to help alleviate floods. At places like Langford Lakes focus is on aquatic creatures and water birds while some schemes look to improve woodland areas. We also have a team concentrating on waste reduction and recycling.’

Events include nature spotting and craft for children, introduction to wildlife skills and evening talks are regularly held around the county. Extremely popular is ‘Country comes to town’ held annually in Devizes where people can experience wildlife & nature first hand. A care farm helps people with learning difficulties, mental health and getting back into the workplace.

‘We rely heavily on our 2000 volunteers and our membership scheme which gives locals access to member events and reserve guides. Everything is so hectic in the modern age and there’s a huge reliance on technology. We hope to encourage people to take a step back, switch off and reconnect with nature. We want people to feel pride in their county.’

Our top things to do in Wiltshire

Bird watching at Langford Lakes Nature Reserve

Whether it’s taking time out in one of the reserve’s bird hides to watch over the lakes or to walk the perimeter path and take in the views of the wetland and garden birds.

Wildflower spotting at Lower Moor Farm Complex

Throughout the year, Lower Moor Farm makes an ideal place to spot a variety of nature. Spring and summer bring with them a wealth of wildflowers adorning some of the meadows, including the beautiful snakeshead fritillary (usually during late April-May). Look out for guided walks run by Wiltshire Wildlife Trust during this time.

Soak up the colours of Green Lane Wood

An ancient oak woodland, near Trowbridge. A great place for woodland walks, nature fun and spotting wildlife. Beautiful to visit in the spring for the bluebells or the autumn for the rich colours of the leaves.
