Combs Wood

What we do

Stowmarket Wildlife Group is a group of volunteers who care deeply about wildlife, not only for its beauty and diversity but its importance to everyone’s existence.

We support the Trust’s aims and its vision for a Living Landscape. Whole landscapes that are richer in wildlife – landscapes with nature reserves,
SSSIs and County Wildlife Sites at their heart, from which species can move through a wildlife-rich countryside along networks of linked-up habitat.

Looking after local wildlife reserves

Work parties regularly meet to help maintain Combs and Bonny Woods. These are always an enjoyable way to do your bit for wildlife in the company
of like-minded friends.

Organising local events

Events are held throughout the year, including wildlife talks and guided walks. The Trust’s aims are promoted by becoming involved with local
community organisations and events.We especially encourage the young to appreciate and respect wildlife and help safeguard its future.

Magazine delivery

The Trust’s magazine is delivered to local members, saving a substantial amount in postage costs.

How you can help

Through our activities, we encourage others to become involved, by volunteering, becoming members and making donations to purchase new reserves.
