50 Years of RSPB Local Groups

In 1969, four RSPB Members' Groups were founded - the forerunners of the Local Groups we know today. There are now more than 140 Local Groups, including the RSPB Lancaster Local Group. While we were not one of the first, we have been in existence for the majority of those 50 years!

Since 1969, Local Groups have been responsible for over ...
12 million hours of volunteer work
80,000 wildlife talks
£25 million raised to help give nature a home
120,000 guided walks
33,000 newsletters
