About Us

The Brentwood and Billericay local group carries out all manner of fundraising activities and events including nature reserve Open Days, as well as recruiting new members, local publicity, work parties, evening talks and wildlife trust magazine deliveries.

We provide the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded people, share interests and have fun. Our programmes of events, which include guided walks and illustrative talks, are a great way for you to extend your knowledge of wildlife and to meet informed people who share an interest in the natural world.

We also work hard to publicise the work of the Essex Wildlife Trust, support campaigns and carry out valuable fundraising for the Trust to help protect the wildlife in Essex. We are always happy to welcome new people who want to get involved helping preserve the wildlife of Essex, if that is you, then please contact one of our Committee Members below.
