Local Specialist Groups
There are a number of specialist interest groups dedicated to conserving and recording Somerset’s rich wildlife and varied geology.
Joining these groups is one of the best ways to get actively involved in recording and get support from fellow enthusiasts. There is a group to suit every interest and they are involved in a range of different activities from surveying to practical conservation work. Many also provide advice to members of the public and conservation organisations, and they are an invaluable source of local expertise.
The following groups work for local nature conservation. Somerset Wildlife Trust and Somerset Environmental Records Centre (SERC) are pleased to work in partnership with them. You can also support local survey and monitoring efforts by sending your records to SERC.
