Wildlife Watching

    To find out about special places to visit in the Malvern area through the different seasons, for example snowdrops in January or orchids in June, click on Wildlife Calendar Guide.

    Our outdoor meetings take place throughout the year, most during the spring, summer and autumn, and include wildlife walks or informal rambles/study sessions in the local area, often on a WWT nature reserve and sometimes accompanied by a wildlife expert. In addition, the Malvern Group runs coach trips further afield. There is usually no charge except for the normal entrance or tour fee at specific venues and for coach travel if relevant. However a small donation to Worcestershire Wildlife Trust would be much appreciated. For more details of walks and trips, see Calendar. For details of the informal local area rambles/study sessions, e-mail to malverngroup@live.co.uk.
