Protecting wildlife in Avon

More than 18,000 members, 3,500 volunteers and a dedicated staff team work together to make our local area wilder and make nature part of life, for everyone. Avon Wildlife Trust is an independent charity. We’d love you to join us.

Coronavirus update

In the light of the Government advice on Coronavirus, we want to let you know about the measures we are taking and how these may affect you when visiting and contacting Avon Wildlife Trust. We are cancelling all events and activities until June 2020, and reviewing things going forward. We've taken the decision to furlough many of our staff and shut down most of our operations until this period is over. Like all charities, we are facing a difficult financial situation and we have taken this decision to ensure that the charity can get through this difficult time. Our Grow Wilder online shop (formerly Feed Bristol) is now open for wildflower and veg orders so you can connect with the natural world and support wildlife on your doorstep. Why not subscribe to our newsletter to stay in touch and get updates and nature news from us during lockdown.
