About Us

We meet at 8.15pm on the 3rd Thursday of each month between September & April (exc. December) at the United Reformed Church, High Street, Great Baddow, CM2 7HW. Knowledgeable speakers present illustrated talks on a wide range of wildlife orientated subjects.

We also hold an annual plant sale at the Hanningfield Reservoir Visitor Centre on the 1st Bank Holiday Monday in May.  The profit from the sale of donated plants supports Essex Wildlife Trust directly.
Our annual Fungus Foray at Sandylay & Moat Woods, usually in late October from 10.00am, is popular, particularly with accompanied children.

Occasionally, keen volunteers lead guided walks around local reserves.

Anyone can participate in our events, including non Essex Wildlife Trust members.  New faces are always welcome!
