Wyre Forest Study Group

Welcome to the Wyre Forest Study Group website, a place for celebrating the history, wildlife and landscape of Wyre.

The Wyre Forest Study Group was established in 1991. We are a group of people who bring to the forest and its surroundings our enthusiasm for its wildlife and ecology and a wide range of expertise.

We undertake and participate in surveys of particular species or groups, directed at increasing understanding of their status and distribution, reporting to national bodies, publishing results, and contributing to planning for management to conserve and enhance habitats.

Our regular field days are used for study of selected areas, for targeted observations, and for more general recording. We maintain facilities for gathering information and further study. All records from group fieldwork and from members individually are exchanged with local county Records Centres, and those from the wider public are included.

We welcome naturalists from further afield to our activities, and benefit from their expertise. We provide a supportive framework within which students and people planning careers in conservation and ecology can conduct their own projects.
