The Avon Wildlife Trust is the largest membership-based wildlife organisation in the area, dedicated to promoting and protecting wildlife.
We have a very active nestbox team carrying out site and habitat surveys, nestbox manufacture, installation and monitoring. We have nearly 200 nestboxes in our area.
The South Glos group attends numerous school fetes, open days and conservation events through the year to help promote the work of the Trust and to encourage new membership.
Outdoor Dads is a group for dads and male carers to have an adventurous day in the woods with their kids. We light fires, cook lunch, explore the woodland and play games, build dens, use hand tools and much more. Spend quality time learning new skills with your children in the beautiful woodland at Tortworth.
We meet on the third Saturday of the month 10.30am–2.30pm. Booking is essential.

The RSPB website has lots of useful information, including an excellent A-Z guide to UK birds.
Tortworth Forest Centre is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company which aims to improve lives by reconnecting people with nature, through conservation, wellbeing programmes, outdoor events, courses and volunteering opportunities.
The Centre is based at Tortworth Arboretum, a historically and culturally rich woodland. There is huge potential to bring this unique place back to use and to share it with people who want to learn about woodlands and develop outdoor skills - so get in touch if you want to be a part of it.
