At a time when global environmental problems can seem insurmountable, for anyone making a New Year’s resolutions to try and make a difference, the Wildlife Trust are offering half-price membership throughout January.
Each member receives Local Wildlife magazine (the children’s version is Wildlife Watch) three times a year, information on events, local groups, walks, talks via newsletters – but the biggest benefit of all is knowing that local wildlife in the area, and all the conservation work involved, will be helped and maintained. There are a variety of memberships, from child to adult to families, so please visit
