About Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust
Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust is one of 46 Wildlife Trusts working across the UK. With the invaluable support of volunteers and members we manage over 50 nature reserves. We also work with other organisations and landowners to protect and connect wildlife sites across the county and inspire local communities and young people to care for wildlife where they live.
Annual General Meeting - 2018
The 57th AGM of Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and Members’ Morning will be held on Saturday 27th October 2018, 10am–1pm at Winchester Guildhall, Broadway, High Street, Winchester SO23 9GH.
This county’s natural diversity is possibly unsurpassed in the UK, and when you add the unspoiled habitats of the Isle of Wight you have an internationally important assemblage of wildlife. Some of these sights are almost unique, notably our chalk streams and sandy lowland heaths.
And importantly, most of these places are accessible to us all, in the fantastic collection of nature reserves managed by Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.
