Cam Valley Wildlife Group

Cam Valley Wildlife Logo

Founded 1994

The aims are biodiversity conservation & raising awareness / promoting education & enjoyment of wildlife.

The Groups area is based around Midsomer Norton & Radstock but covers the area from Chewton Mendip in the west to Midford in the east, along both the Cam and Wellow Valleys on both sides of the B&NES/Mendip boundary.

Membership is currently 100+ households (200 people or so) - but very keen to attract new members from throughout our area - We hope that anyone in Wellow with an interest in wildlife who sees our entry on the site will feel like joining. £5 per household per year - excellent value for money

A Newsletter is produced 4 times a year in February, May, August and November and sent to all members free - aims are to update people on the group's actviities and to educate & inform about local wildlife & conservation issues.

Active in site-based conservation - managing several sites - advising on management at several others - campaigning when important sites are threatened

Wildlife recording - several projects, aimed at building up detailed picture of what wildlife we have in the area - flora, insects, bats, owls so far - more to come hopefully.

Species-conservation projects - Several species-based conservation projects for the rarest & most threatened species in our area.

Activities for members - with lots of events - 4 talks a year held at Centurion Hotel in Midsomer Norton, wildlife walks with either general or specific themes, survey days, events for beginners, social events.

Contact name for the group is Helena Crouch, Bronwen, Farrington Road, Paulton, Bristol, BS39 7LP
