Supporting practical conservation and education in the Shropshire Hills

As meadows burst into colour this month, why not join your local plant group to help survey these special sites in the Shropshire Hills.

The AONB Conservation Fund is supporting a series of walks and workshops for people interested in plants to encourage more people to get involved in active conservation. Everyone welcome, and for more information about plant surveys please contact Rob Rowe on 01588 630648 or email

Churchyard surveys please contact Alex on 01588 673041, or email

The Shropshire Hills AONB Trust has distributed £15,000 through the AONB Conservation Fund to 11 local projects this year. These projects are helping to deliver practical conservation and/or educational activity about the AONB.  As well as plant surveys, projects include planting for pollinators at the Wrekin, monitoring Whinchat numbers on the Long Mynd, and a summer club for young people at Brynmawr Farm.
