About us

The group offers to all its members opportunities to learn more about birds and other wildlife in Dorset and further a field. We also raise money to support our local nature reserves.

We have field trips once or twice a month from September to June and indoor meetings are on every 4th Thursday of each month (the only exception is December) from September to April, 7.15pm-9pm.

Entrance is via the door at the RIGHT hand end of the building (look for the RSPB logo). Take the steps down (lift available) then turn right to Meeting Room 2.
Parking: at the right hand end of the building follow the road through the barrier for ample parking. Accessible parking is available on the left before the barrier. Please avoid parking elsewhere as a charge may apply.
Refreshments will be available. Please bring your own reusable drinks container.

Please Contact Us for further information about group activities and events.

FOR ALL OTHER ENQUIRIES PLEASE CALL THE RSPB ENGLAND OFFICE IN EXETER ON 01392 432691 (Monday - Friday 9am - 5.15pm).
